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 !

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.
