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 !

Do you mean this subject matter?
Because I would date and attribute your 'little begging puppy' Nephrite to the same period and source (ie., ca.1760-1800 and Palace Workshops). So, in a way, you already have "one of this kind" in your collection.

Dear Steven,

I look forward to seeing your "little begging puppy" nephrite bottle. It must be cute and lovely! Roll Eyes

Best,
Samson

Dear Samson,

      May it be the first of many Nephrites!
Best,
Joey

Dear Joey,

We have a saying in Chinese called "承你貴言" (Cheng Ni Gui Yan) which sort of means "May it come true as you have wished me"... So, Cheng Ni Gui Yan! Grin

Best,
Samson

P.S. By the way, who are Rodney and Dell Boy? Huh

Dear Steven,
 
     May G-D Grant you and all my other friends on the Forum, all the best buys of great snuff bottles!

    Del Boy & Rodney are from the hit BBC series, "Only Fools and Horses". They are shady market stall traders in the Cockney area of London, and always trying to trick people and try to get rich quick. Of course, they always lose, because they outsmart themselves.
And Del Boy always talks about 'the punters' (the customers, but in the sense of 'the marks who can be cheated).

   Best,
Joey

Dear Samson,

What a beauty to look at ! 恭喜你 !
What is the size of the jade bottle ?

I also find it quite challenging to photograph white bottles.

Tom,

Thanks for the tip. I must try it as you suggest when I go back to Singapore .
