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 !

Here's our response to our Singaporean fellows. We have to keep up with you guys!

After two meetings, finally we have a picture together. Joining us today was my uncle Geoffrey from Toronto, Canada who is interested in learning about the very hobby that his nephew has been devoted to. It was a short but pleasant get together and Geoff had brought over some of his snuff bottles as our dim sum too! Grin (for those who're not familiar with HK culture, dim sum means snacks in Cantonese...)

Best,
Samson

Thanks Samson

For those members who don't know us, we are, in order from left, Peter Bentley, Geoff Welch and Samson Lee with Samson's uncle, also a Geoff, on the right.

I would like to point out that I am not a dwarf, as appears in this photo, but Samson and I are kneeling on the ground with the two 'big' guys, Peter and the other Geoff, sitting on chairs. It was the only way we could get a close-up photo of everyone.

I just thought the photo made me look a bit small Joey.
Maybe it's just my sensitivity.

You could also say the photo makes Samson look a bit young.
But in his case, it's completely accurate.
And he's now got two kids! (he showed us some great photos of them).

Dear Geoff,

    From the smiles on the three SB collectors' faces, and the frown on the other Geoff's face, I can state with anecdotal evidence, that collecting SBs makes the collectors happy!  Roll Eyes Grin Cheesy
Best to All,

Actually Joey, the other Geoff was a very good listener.

But then he didn't really have much choice.
Which probably explains the frown - "What the heck are these guys talking about?"

    In the interests of full disclosure,  I must confess that I ate well in the presence of BOTH the Singapore Group in Oct.2014 and the HK Forum members in 2016.

    Of course, I also ate well in Piacenza, Italy; Plano, TX; Bangkok, Thailand; Paris, France; NYC; Rio Dell, CA; Palm Beach, FL; Chicago, IL.; and New Orleans; all in the company of Forum members!  Shocked Roll Eyes Grin
