Not sure if this is the correct place to post this, but I thought this was amusing. (Maybe everyone else has seen this before, but I haven't.) Someone on ebay is selling an IP snuff bottle with the theme of snuff bottles.

Dear Ilene,

Where's the Buddha?
Cute bottle, but not great quality painting, in my opinion.
Though the Lishu (Clerical Script) calligraphy looks good.
Thank you for posting it.
Best,
Joey

Dear Joey,

The Buddha is the shape of one of the snuff bottles (front left). Yes, I know it is not a great bottle, but I thought the subject matter was great!  Wink

Ha..ha...quite an original concept.

I wonder if this depicts just an assortment of odd bottles, or does it represent someone's collection.
