Found this bottle in an antique shop just recently, along with another I will be asking about when I get a photo. I was thrilled to find a few snuff bottles in an actual brick and mortar store. Especially in a remote town outside of Waco, Texas.  So I had to buy it, just for the experience!!

    It is very smooth in my hand and it is also quite thin. There is a nice shiny brass, or maybe even gilt spoon.

     The fun was worth the $40.00, but was the bottle?

Kaja,

I remember finding my first bottle in an antique store!  Unfortunately, my sightings since have been few and far between...
Congrats on a modern cloisonne.

Cheers,

Rube.

Thank you both. It was exciting to find a snuff bottle locally.  Now I want to visit all the antique stores again.

Dear Kaja,

    Genuine antique SBs are still out there. Don't give up hope (though it doesn't sound like you are  Roll Eyes Grin)....

     Just a couple of years ago, I was visiting a dear friend, Rick, in New Orleans. He had alerted me to the fact that a late 18th C. Fruit form Spinach green Nephrite Jade with a coral stem stopper, had been  'bought in' at a local auction only a few days prior to my visit, and could be had for under US$1,000 (US$800 hammer price, plus the auction's 10-15% commission, and the State's tax on the commission).

    Proving the adage that no good deed goes unpunished, I dragged poor Rick 6 or 7 blocks in the muggy hot N.O. Afternoon, past these scruffy street people, to go to the  auction house to buy it IMMEDIATELY! I have it and am very happy with it,

Best,
Joey
