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 !

This was a buy it now with out of focus pics. So did not know what to expect for the paintings. 

It was really more this hand blown, 3 1/8" flattened rectangular shape with low sloping shouldered bottle that made me hit the buy it now..

Turns out that the not so badly painted 100 children playing theme is indeed completely painted without any photo enhancement. 

The year appears to be Ping-Tzu, but not sure about being 1936 or 1996. If someone can make out the artist's name it could help decide between the two.  Actually it would be great to know the entire script  Wink

Enjoy !

Sorry George. For that you need Steven, Pin, Richard, etc.
I'm just looking at the style of painting and of the calligraphy to make this judgement call.

Joey

No signature for the bottle... the few words are

百子闹春图..... One hundred son "making a lot of noise" in spring.
丙寅冬月..... Year of fire tiger, winter mth

Dear George,

     I'm a 'Fire Rooster', and my 60th birthday is in March.
1986 was the last year of the 'Fire Tiger'; before that, it was 1926.
There is a problem here - either it is 1996 or 1986.
Best,
Joey
