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.

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 !

Dear Members,

Did anyone snag this Yutian bottles? It sold on eBay UK a couple of weeks ago. It is unsigned (as is usual) Yan Yutian probably late 19th/early 20th Century. What are your thoughts on this bottle? It looks like an old medicine bottle. It sold for about 210 USD (I was outbid).

Best,

Brian

Dear Pin,
no doubt YYT. It is interesting that on one side it has the same subject that is on one of his bottles that I have, see picture attached.
Are bottles of that shape medicine bottles? If so, it is interesting to know, because I have seen quite a few of YYT bottles recently with that type of bottle, which make me suspicious at a certain point, also because all them are in perfect conditions. But his hand is unmistakable (in fact, the only painter that I am able to recognize, haha) so I think that they are all genuine.
I have one of this type of bottle, of very good quality. I like the fact that on some of these bottles, including my one, the subjects on the four sides are completely different nevertheless they are connected, like in a continuous landscape.
And no, I am not who has bought this bottle.
Kind regards
Giovanni

Hey Brian,

Isn't it funny what a small world the snuff bottle community is?
I bought it. Quite a bargain!

In a way, I am glad I did not win this one. Otherwise I would not have purchased the blue camel bottle, which I like more.

I don't know anything about inside painted, but it is a very attractive bottle. Congrats to both for getting bargains and nice bottles!
