Dear YT,
Upon the answer from the Museum sending me the link, I sent them an answer with a list of mistakes.
The same you have pointed out, except the bone bottle, which I did not verify because I do not like them, and the calcified jade, which too I have not examined.
So thank you very much, will send the corrections to the lady.
What I did like very much are some b&w bottles and overall some original spoon/stoppers.
What is really strange is the urinal shaped object, because it is very small. Could it be meant for children, in your opinion? For sure not a snuff bottle.
Kind regards
Giovanni
PS: Yes dear Tom, it is fun to catch the mistakes. I presume that they do not have an expert on Chinese Art.
