Dear Members,

Is this another opaque glass bottle? The shape and bats with bi discs decoration looks modern to me.

Thank you,

Brian

Both the shape and the carving style point to this being a totally modern bottle Brian, although it could be nephrite jade. Hard to tell the material for sure from the pictures.

Agreed with Tom.

Brian, look at more examples. Nephrite is perhaps the most difficult material to buy in snuff bottles.

Cheers,

Dear Brian,

  I agree with YT and Tom. It sure looks like Nephrite to me. And modern.
Best,
Joey
