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 Joey, 5777? You are 3761 years beyond us! Sad
Well but at least we are 622 years beyond the Islamic calendar. Grin
Best wishes for the New Year, and yes, a really concise language!
Kind regards
Giovanni

Dear Giovanni,

      We date the traditional Creation of the Earth back to 5777. This is only a traditional date, and except for a small number of UltraOrthodox Jews, we all accept that the world is billions of years old.
G-D Wanted to Teach mankind certain lessons, and people then could not have comprehended the concept of billions of years. HE Wanted us to understand that Man needs a day of rest, so HE Stated that HE'd Made the world in 6 days, and Rested the seventh. So we should all also rest one day in seven.
      Incidentally, Giovanni, the ancient Romans considered us lazy, for wanting to rest 1 day in seven!  Grin

      G-D Wanted Mankind to understand that HE Is the Divine Creator, and that His Is the Power and the Right to divvy up land, and He Gave us the Land of Israel, as He Gave other Nations (Egypt, Moab, Edom, Syria, etc.) their lands. And it is ours, and no-one can take it from us. Not the UN, not Obama, not Erdogan. No-one.
      The Jewish people date only from 3,850 years ago, from the choice by Abram to follow G-D, Who then Changed his name to Abraham (Father of Great Nations).

     Best to all,
Joey

Dear Samson, Pin, Giovanni, George, and YT,

     Thank you, my friends.
I will be praying over the 10 Days of Awe (from today, the start of Jewish New Year, to the end of the Day of Atonement, Yom Kippur), as will all Jews, that G-D will bless all the righteous of the Seventy Nations with a good year. 'The Seventy Nations' is our traditional term for the whole world outside of the Jewish people.

    That means that most people will be blessed, as far as G-D Listens to our prayers.
But ISIS, Hamas, the Jihadis, and others who murder and rape and enslave innocents,
are screwed, G-D Willing.  Roll Eyes Grin Wink

Best,
Joey
