Dear all,

I came across this object that has been described as a "Satsuma" snuff bottle. Personally,
I've never come across such a snuff bottle before. Looks really interesting but I simply can't identify it. The name given suggests a Japanese origin. I decide to start this thread under the porcelain category for now. Any comment?

Best,
Samson

I would have to call it a vase rather than a bottle...

That would be a miniature vase then. It's 2.25 in high.

Definitely Japanese Satsuma and it is a small vase.   Charll

Dear Samson,
 
     I agree with George and Charll, that it is Satsuma pottery and Japanese, and a miniature vase, but the first view seems to show a crack across the front.

That's right Joey, it does unfortunately have a crack.. What a shame...

It's the first time I've come across such object. Now I know it's a satsuma ware!

Best,
Samson

Dear Samson,

      With that damage, I hope you didn't buy it.

Dear Joey,

I never thought of including it into my "to buy list" as I already had a feeling that it may not be a strict snuff bottle. Just wanted to share with you all and broaden my knowledge as I'd never seen anything like it before. Smiley

So don't worry!  Wink

Best,
Samson

Dear Samson,
