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 Cathy, I don't know how others think about it, but if I were you, I wouldn't put a gold chain in it out of fear that the relatively hard chain might cause damage to the jade surface over time (chain is like a saw with smoother edges). I observed that people put in a red string instead, at least it's more a Chinese thing... Roll Eyes

Best,
Samson

Thanks Samson!

I ordered some thin cord and am going to try to string it up properly. At this point I don't know how to tie it but will give it a go!  Wink

Cathy,

Congratulations for the purse-shape jade bottle you just acquired !

The overall from and carvings are really appealing to the eyes ! Could you try to shine some light from behind
one of the faces of the bottle to see if we can see more of the hollowing of the inside
As to the stringing of the bottle , I will like to share one of the agate bottle of mine with the stringing quite well done for my taste ( see picture attached ). No gold chain or gold dust  Cheesy Cheesy

Tom,

Just to clarify, it was not me who did the strings  Cheesy Cheesy They came with the bottle I bought from a Beijing dealer.

The strings could be original with the bottle or designed and fixed by one of the previous owners.

Here are a few photos of my jade purse bottle.  It is approximately 47.6 mm tall without the stopper.  Any ideas of an age range?  Oops... I just noticed there may be a dab of glue on the base!  Thanks   Jo

Jo, that's lovely! It looks lavender and green with a tourmaline top?

I took the liberty of resizing your photos so others can see it

Thanks Cathy.  There is definitely a touch of green shading in the left lower side of the bottle. Thanks for resizing the photos!

Jo, it's a lovely bottle - it looks lavender and green at the bottom. Yours also appears to possibly be jadeite?

Sorry I can't help with the dating, but I think yours is so similar with the serrated top and matching serrated stopper that I would imagine it falls into the same age range.

Neither can I help with dating Jo, but agree with everything Cathy just posted, including it looking like jadeite..

She is a beauty Jo !

Thank you.  I do agree the age must be similar to the beauty Cathy posted.
