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 !

Dear Members,

This bottle sold at auction in California a couple of weeks ago I think (not to me though I was watching). Do you think this is an authentic Zhou Leyuan bottle? Is this a fake or painted by another artist?

Best,

Brian

I saw that one to Brian..  My vote is that it is not painted by ZLY...

Thanks George. I agree. The signature and calligraphy looks a little weak compared to most ZLY bottles. I think it is probably still a Middle Period piece in the style of ZLY, perhaps by one of his students. It has some of the shading and brush strokes commonly used by ZLY I think.
