This lovely deeply carved snuff bottle originates from China and features a trotting horse on one side and a galloping horse on the other. It is an ivory colour with a green background and has a lovely little jade lid with a tiny spoon for snuff. It is finished with brass around the neck and on the bottom where there is either a maker’s mark or a message.
This lovely little bottle is in very good condition and stands approx. 7.5cm high and is approx. 4.5cm at its widest point. The detail of the carving is beautiful with flowers, plats, trees and decorative finishes all over.
A very pretty snuff bottle for display or for use as the lid fits very snugly.
