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.

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 !

I was looking through the book Chinese Inside Painting of the Modern Age and came across something interesting. On page 47 there is a vase painted with colorful warriors very much like the ones we've been talking about that are currently attributed to Yong Shoutian.
The artist is Xue Jingwan, 1893-1987
I also think the bottle shown there of a woman is very similar to Liu Qiao's style.
However, I cannot seem to find any other bottles attributed to this artist, and need more to compare.
Does anyone have Xue Jingwan bottles to share, or can they point me in the direction of more of his work?

The only other references I could find to Xue Jingwan from a couple of websites:

They claim he was the first to use a brush instead of a bamboo pen.

For those not familiar with the search box at top right of forum..

Many times you can simply type in key words like, Xue Jingwan, and will find an archived topic..
