I've got two of these, what I think could be a snuff bottle, but I am most probably wrong. This one is almost 2 1/2" tall and is 3/4" wide at it's widest, while the base is 1/2" wide. I have it's twin. The only difference between the two is color. Same colors, just one has lighter hues. I truely appreciate any help.

Hi Rita..

I would like to help you know about your pictures..

Please click on your images.. Notice how huge they are ?

I resized your inside painted Shandong bottle..  Do you know how to resize and crop your images on your computer before posting them ?

If not, please let me know and I will explain in detail..

Once you notice how large they currently are, I will resize for you, but want to make sure you see what I mean before I do...

What program are you using..

Most computers come with "paint"...  You don't have that ?

No worries...  Got them resized..

I am not positive about the bottle... Maybe Cantonese, but will have to wait to see what the porcelain experts say..

Dear Rita, welcome to the Forum.
I am not 100% sure, because there is one detail that I don't like very much in your bottle, the way of painting the clouds. It is not excluding the dating that I have in mind, just not fully ok.
But the style of the face is clealry pointing toward Tongzhi, or early Guangxu at latest.
All in all it should be genuine of that period, but more pictures, including possibly the other bottle, may help.
Kind regards
Giovanni

Giovanni,

Thank you so much for your time and interest in helping me identify these 2 bottles. As you can see, I've included pictures of the pair. If for any reason you require another photo, please let me know.

Best regards,
Rita
