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 am wondering if there is anything of interest here or late 20th Century tourist bottles.

Thank you

Brian

Hi Brain,

I kind of like the first one better, which is a shandong 40s -60s bottle. I actually still own a couple of similar ones.
The 2nd one is well painted and appealing  as well ,but not my taste .
The 3rd one is the oldest one ,but I dont like the painting.

Thanks Steven. How old you think the last one is? It kind of looks like a Bi Rongiu imitation to me.

Dear Brian,

I personally feel that the last one resembles Yong Shoutian more...

Best,
Samson

P.S. That's an interesting stopper!

Hi Brian,

The last one is a Liu Qiao - I would bet my entire collection that it is.
If it's cheap enough, it is at least a listed artist - albeit a very low grade one. I have three of his works.

You can read more about him on the Liu Qiao thread here:
http://snuffbottle.smfforfree.com/index.php/topic,3203.0.html

I found the listing on ebay and the person is asking way too much (IMO)
The most I've paid for a non warrior bottle is $100 (and that was with a really good top)
You can see it here:
