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 Al

Can anyone  refer  me to  the  book / catalog  - if possible  with a  pic  of the   front cover, please?

Cheers

Hi Peter,

If it's not yours (and nothing to do with automobiles), then I have never come across it.
Sorry I can't help.

Well spotted Samson! 

This looks like one of the Asian Art Studio's series of catalogues published in connection with the disposal of a collection.

The Bentley Collection was sold by Clare & Michael Chu in 2008, via the catalogue and the ICSBS 2008 Boston convention, primarily.

   The owners, from the UK, bought their first snuff bottles in 1973 in Hong Kong. They also became friendly through work, with one of the top HK collectors, and lived in Hong Kong from 1983-1988. They returned to the UK in 1988, and continued collecting till 2008, when they decided to sell their collection of about 150 bottles (145 are illustrated).

Best,
Joey
