Hi all.

A Yixing bottle I purchased recently with a little provenance.

I have an original sales invoice for this from 1999 from the seller to it's new owner.

"Yixing pottery snuff bottle. A highly characterised unglazed brown pottery made in and around the town of Yixing in the Jiangsu province. With a dark brown painted design on one side of the angled body of mountains, a river, pavilions, rocks and trees. On the other side is a poem in archaic seal characters, a free translation of which is that no matter how long one has been away, on ones return such a beautiful scene is unchanged. Yixing bottles were particularly favoured by scholars of the literati class who deliberately chose a life of quiet study and understatement and hence would choose a snuff bottle that was dully coloured. 66mm. C 19th"

I can't comment as I don't have the experience or knowledge but I would welcome comments from our resident experts.

Regards all, Adrian.

Others can better help you with Yixing than I can.. But I want to say this is the most attractive Yixing bottle I have ever seen !

That is really interesting about the dull bottles..
