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 !

Amen to that!

   We just finished a delicious Chinese dinner in Steven's home ('we' being Steven, his family, and myself). I'm here visiting for a few days, and go off tomorrow to see other friends in Oklahoma.

Joey

Hello everyone.  I so enjoyed seeing the photos of the tea as well as the bottles. It is nice that you can gather with snuff bottle friends regularly and share.  Have a great week.  Joey- enjoy your time with Steven.

Hi All

The Singapore Snuff Bottle Group meet together again on Sunday at our monthly gathering.

Many members were out of town or busy with other schedules so only three of us were present: Dr Lam, Kelvin (YT) & myself.

However, we have a lengthy but interesting session with Kelvin sharing with us a lot of information. He also brought along some interesting bottles, including a rare three-layered inkstone bottle, a snuff dish container in the form of a snuff bottle, among other interesting bottles.

I brought along a set of multi-layered stone bottles of various materials such as jade, chalcedony and jasper. I bring a different theme of bottles to the gathering each month, be it by material, shape or subject. So far, I have brought themes like quartz, double-gourd shape, fruits & vegetables, organic, double-bottle and bottles with inscription.

All in all, the session was informative and rewarding as we shared market and 'insider' information of the snuff bottle world.

Looking forward to the next session in July.

Regards.


Richard

Thank you for sharing it.
