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 !

Yes indeed Brian.. !

The theme is story of Cao Fighting with Ma Chao from Three Kingdoms period.

Is it a larger bottle?

Congratulations if it is yours !

Thanks George. Is this also a YST bottle? This is a larger size, 5 1/2 inches tall.

Thank you,

Brian

Yes indeed, it sure is Brian...

Both are signed Shoutian and can be dated to about 1920..

5 1/2 is sure a large one !

Hi George

Sorry, I bet to differ.

Both are signed as Liu Qiao on the bottle.

Regards.

Thank you Richard. If Qiao, then probably mid-20th Century then right?

Thanks Pat. From what I've read, Qiao is not as desirable as Shoutian. Is that correct?

In general that's true , however several others in his students signed YST name and Lu Qiao is sometimes better than them. There is a bottle on eBay owned by one our members that is likely to fetch $250 at end of auction.
