You took the words right out of my mouth!

Hi John

This is the legend of the Lady White Snake.

The motif here is the battle scene at Jin Shan Shi (Golden Mountain Temple) between Lady White Snake, her maid and her army of underwater sea creatures against the monk, Fa Hai, and the heavenly army he summoned.

In the first photo, the name of the temple is shown above Xu Xian, Lady White Snake's lover next to the monk Fa Hai.

For your information.

I hope Richard can figure this one out. This imposing bottle [88mm] has a cat-headed figure on a boat. From an internet auction in 2014.

This next example [56mm] has an interesting provenance. The seller said it had been purchased from P.C. Loo in the 1970's.

Dear John,

    I must confess that the latest example, with the precious objects,
and the one with the fighting crickets, are among my favourite examples
from your collection of B & Ws.

A beautiful example, John.
I'm sure Richard will discover the subject matter.

Dear Giovanni,

    Well done.

Dear Richard,

     Your knowledge is so impressive.
I had a molded and enamelled porcelain snuff bottle with this design,
and I mentioned in the description that the palm tree in the garden
was a sign it was molded copying a scene in sub-tropical south China
and that the children signified a wish for many boys.
Your information was so much more nuanced.

Dear Richard,

    A very well deserved accolade.
And successful cultures [and people!] always share knowledge.

And George - Well done.
Best to all,
