Does anybody have any idea of the date of this double Gourd porcelain snuff bottle
Late republic period(1940s) to 1950s or perhaps later- 1970s

Any input appreciated.

Hi Steedy999,

The images in your post don't appear to be of a double gourd bottle.
Also, please check size of images when posting on this forum. Keeping to a max width of around 800 pixels works well.

Best,
Tom

This appears to be an enamel on copper bottle.  From the design and patina it is likely a 20th century bottle, may be from the 1st half.

The images were so big, I immediately dropped them to the original size.
But how was that a 'double gourd' OR a porcelain?
