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 !

Hello,
  This is an inside painted bottle Very large...almost 10 inches tall, and a little wider.
  Was this a custom made piece for a collector, or a bulk bottle such as would be in a snuff store?
  I have two different. signed

Very large !  And yes, it is a snuff bottle, but more decorative than ever actually been used to store snuff.

Looking at the paintings, my best guess is that the black outlines through out the paintings were photo enhanced to the interior, and then blotted in with colors. Much like a coloring book..

The size is really something though !  We like to call these large ones, "Mother bottles".

Yes, but not ever used as an actual snuff bottle. Probably of the very modern vintage.

Pictures too big!!
Dear George it is really a pity that there is no possibility to set a limit to the size of the pictures. That is very annoying. Considering also that this problem will be even worst as time passes. There is a stupid commercial policy of the industry to increase the pixels of the cameras, which is something completely useless, and most of the users does not have the care to consider where they are sending pictures and if it is not better to resize them. The size of the pictures will inevitably grow in time because of such stupid and useless commercial policy, requiring more and more space capacity of the servers, hard disks etc. I hate all this, because it is just useless. I have blocked some people on my email account because of this. "Look at my cat", and then you have to upload a picture bigger than the real cat. Very irritating.
Kind regards
Giovanni

I know and am sorry about this Giovanni.  There is a way to set it, but the adjustment includes any kind of attachments. So by reducing the image size, attaching something like a pdf file would be limited to a few paragraphs..

I noticed this 'alias' as an Ebay seller. 

To Monkey's wrench:  can you please introduce yourself to us, given you are seeking for information, and please resize your pictures.  They are a bit hard to view and take up valuable storage place.  Thanks.
