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 !

Dear Adrian,
 
     A pity yours is damaged near the foot.
Before I tapped on the thumbnail, I also thought, "Hmm, nice B&W Porcelain...", but as soon as I did tap on it, it was obviously enamel on copper; but really a good imitation of B&W Porcelain.

   George, I wonder if yours is imitating a bound rice basket or other staple, and the seals are meant to imitate labels. But I'm not able to read them...
Shabbat Shalom,
Joey

So I tried to figure out Number 4 a little more and think it says:  Fú dian, Lao dian - the dian's appear to be two different ways to spell it - so my guess (probably really bad) is: "Good store, old store!"

Hahaha

Thanks for giving it a whirl Cathy !  Yes, I looked through the seals as well with no luck.

Joey, that is a really wonderful thought about the basket.. I will go for that !

George's bottle is an imitation of a jar of rice wine

Some of the writing are :

1) 福兴老店...... Fu Xing Lao Dian, meaning an old shop with the name FuXing
2) 绍淅陳酒....... Old rice wine
3) 加重...... I am not too sure about this but it literally means weight is added... maybe it means the container has more wine.... which is really a good thing!

Happy Friday everyone!
My brother and I have a tradition that whenever we are choosing snuff bottles together (we often buy together) that we play cribbage to see who gets first pick and so on... I recently visited him in Atlanta and thus was the case
Cheers,

Rube
