General information about the Site

This Chinese snuff bottle community forum is dedicated to the novice, more experienced, and expert collectors. Topics are intended to cover all aspects and types of bottle collecting. To include trials, tribulations, identifying, researching, and much more.

We also freely pour out our pains of spending money, only to later find that our choice in a bottle was not as we expected ! There is no extra charge for our "pain management" program !

We are also working extra hard towards supporting, and giving well deserved recognition to all new and upcoming student artists of "Very Modern" inside painted bottles.

Among other things, donations help keep the forum free from Google type advertisements, and also make it possible to purchases additional photo hosting MB space.

Forum Bottle In The Spotlight !

Another extra special bottle that our fellow collector Pin shared. The "thousand word" classical text is painted by LI Ruchen with a beautifully shaped bottle of upright rectangular form, and sloping shoulders. Congratulations Pin !

Dear Members,

I recently purchased this one at a shop for a few dollars. I am sure it is very modern, but I thought it looked interesting.

Thank you,

Brian

Hey there Brian...

Yes indeed, modern... Well, at least we can say within the last 40 years of so..

Not so badly painted... Better than other similar bottles..  It looks a bit large.. How tall is it ?

If you got it for a few bucks, then will look nice on the shelf !

Thanks George. It is about 4 1/2 inches tall. I think it looks nice.

Yes, larger then..  Not as large as my similar 5 1/2" bottle, but close, and except for that mine is square and not hexagonal..

Getting seamless "continuity" of painting when the interior surface has no corners is always a good sign, IMO.
