John,

The bottle with the 8 trigrams is very good and a rare subject.
Best,

Joey, I agree you do not see many of them. This next example [55mm] came from my local auction in 2000. Maybe Richard can figure out the seal.

Beautiful Yangzhou Seal School bottle, John.
I love the water buffaloes.
Ca. 1820 - 1880.
Best,

This small bottle [55mm] was in consideration for display at the Philadelphia convention. It has a nice red color and a thick white overlay.

Dear John,

 Could the indentations form integral snuff dishes in effect?
Best,

Joey, the overlay is high enough but the center is not concave.

This double overlay [70mm] is to be displayed at the Philadelphia convention. Very fine carving. Clare's dating 1780 to 1850. From a collection I bought out from N.Y. state in 2000.

Dear John,
your bogutu bottle is like my one (I added “bogutu” to the description of mine. Thanks Richard!) except that on my one the dragon head of the tripod is holding a lamp, while on your bottle it is holding a musical jade stone gong.
I like very much the bottle with the eight trigrams in red overlay.
Kind regards
Giovanni

Dear John,

    The double Overlay of white on black on bubble glass is wonderful.
I've seen a small group of these over the years, and all are of superb
quality, as is this example.
I would dispute Clare's dating.
I think that ca. 1750 - 1830 is more correct.
Or at most, ca. 1750 - 1840.
Best,
Joey

Joey, I agree more with your dating. Another red overlay [56mm] with male and female chi dragons. Nice handles. From an auction in 2016.

Hi John

The seal mark on post #241 appears to be a pen name, Xiao Mou (小某).

For your reference.

Regards.

John,

The last chi long bottle is wonderful.   Let me know when you are willing to allow me to add it to my collection.   Wink

Richard, thanks so much for translating the seal. Another "bogutu" bottle [60mm], one of a pair. Nice thick overlay. From an auction in 2015.

 Another fine example,
but I would date it ca.1800 - 1850.
Please don't ask me why.
I don't know, but that's what 'it said to me',
when I looked at it.
Best,
Joey

Joey, I agree. The shape and the footrim do not remind me of 18th century workmanship. The other bottle of the set.
