A beautifully detailed reproduction faux carved ivory snuff bottle.
This little snuff bottle has the most beautiful carved details with a trotting horse on one side and a galloping horse on the other. Down the two edges and around the top are floral details and swirls. The bottle is I believe made from resin or some other similar substance and appears to be designed to recreate carved ivory. The background is green background and it has a lovely little lid made from real jade.
It is finished with a brass edging around the neck and it also has a brass bottom where there is either a maker’s mark or a message. The jade lid is attached to a tiny spoon for collecting the snuff. A cork stopper keeps the lid secure.
This lovely little bottle is in good condition and stands approx. 7.5cm high and 4.5cm at its widest point.
A very pretty snuff bottle for display or for use as the lid fits snugly.
