Hi I am a new member and first want to say hello and that I am amazed and impressed with the beauty and intricacy that are displayed in the many tiny pieces of art I have come across on this website.  I do have a snuff bottle that I need some help identifying.  If anyone can help me that would be amazing.  I will include some pictures.  Thanks for your time.

Dear Tryvox 36,

      Facinating name. Do friends call you 'Try' or 'Vox'?  And are you 36 or born in 1936?
Seriously though, welcome to the Forum. How do we address you?
I live in Jerusalem Israel most of the year, but summer in Ireland.

    The bottle you've posted is a cloisonne enamel on copper, and dates to ca.1950-2015 (or 6 months before you purchased it, whichever is later), the fake seal reign mark on a panel to the base notwithstanding.
