Pine, bamboo and plum blossom
Clerical (lishu), standard (kaishu) and semi-cursive (hsingshu) calligraphy

3+3 = 6 (so my boy tells me) and this bottle has six sides.
But I'm not sure if I've got them the right way around.







Hexagonal bottles are very difficult to photograph. But I think the bottle is signed Xiaosan, obviously a pen name, and dated 1970 but I doubt that, it looks much more modern.

Any other details on the Chinese, I would be pleased to hear.

Geoff,

I thought both the bottle and artist name looked familiar.   See the attached link to Bill's Snuff Bottle Collector site;

Thanks George

Yes Charll, it's the same bottle. I bought it from Bill.
He's a good and reliable source of bottles, I have several from him.

Dear Geoff,

     Beautiful bottle. Thank you for posting. I need to check out this site.
     I checked the link Charll supplied, and saw you'd copied the original mistake ['hsingshu' should be written 'xingshu' in Hanyu Pinyin; otherwise, Xiaosan should have been written 'Hsiaosan'... Grin Roll Eyes].
Best,
Joey

Thanks Joey

I agree, once you use x in pinyin you should continue to use x and not hs.
But is there any distinction between them? Are there times when you should use one and not the other?

Hi Geoff,

Lovely bottle, it reminds me of scrolls in it's style of painting the 3 friends of winter.

Regards, Adrian.

Dear Geoff,
 
     No, I was just pulling your leg. Roll Eyes Shocked Grin
It should ALWAYS be 'x' instead of 'hs'.
And again, a BEAUTIFUL bottle. Congratulations.
Best,
Shabbat Shalom,
Joey
