 I would expect far more precision in the painting of the design and the gold enameling should be contained within the black framing of the border

Thank you Charll. I thought it was a crazy amount for it.

I thought all bottles ( medicine or otherwise) labeled Jiaqing came with the gold over the blue underglaze ? 

Here is one within Raymond Li's, "The Medicine Snuff Bottle Connection", and another within a November/December 1976 Arts of Asia Magazine..

They are the only examples I can find without the gold, but I sort of thought all Jiaqing bottles (medicine or otherwise) all had the gold ?

After seeing these examples, guess I was wrong.
