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 All,

Please  can anyone  read this signature  (and whatever else is written) ?

I think I can  clearly see  Guo Shun 国 顺  (except that the  Guo  is  in traditional   script and the  Shun is  simplified ?!)

But what's the   character before  that, and what's the  date  and  other  things  written?

Cheers

Peter

Hi Peter,

I see that as "寫" which means "write". The statement read "written in Yihu Zhai in the autumn month of the year of Yihai. Guoshun"

Best,
Samson

Hi  Samson

Thanks for  the  reply.

That  was  also  BingBing's   interpretation .

Seems  like   the  bottle  was  painted  by  Fu Guoshun 付国顺 although it's a very  unusual style  for  him

Cheers

Peter

Hi  again Samson

Ah.... year  Yi Hai  =  1995  correct?

That  explains the   style of the  bottle  - halfway between  FGS's  old style (as per New Look) and    his  very modern  style  (2005  + )

Cheers

Can you send the whole picture of the bottle?
I think:
元章题石 = Yuan Zhang Writting on the Stone
乙亥年秋月于一壶斋写国顺 = Written by Guo Shun in One Bottle Studio inthe Autumn of 1995
If I can see the picture of the bottle, maybe the meaning will be "painted by Guo Shun in One Bottle Studio inthe Autumn of 1995".
