Old Chinese Porcelain Snuff Bottle with Purple Glass Lid & Attached Bone SpoonOriental / Asian
Here is a lovely old Chinese porcelain snuff bottle with a purple glass lid and attached bone spoon.
The bottle has a white background with a scene painted on each side. One side shows a piece of fruit resting on bamboo leaves and branches; the other side shows an old man beside the piece of fruit. On the ends of the bottle are painted animal heads and rings to denote handles.
On the underside of the bottle are the carved initials “W. M. H. K.” which may be representative of the artist’s name but it is unknown.
The bottle with stopper / spoon inside are 3 inches tall x 1 3/4 inches wide. The stopper / spoon by itself is 2 1/2 inches long.
There is some slight wear to the painting of the old man but, overall, the bottle and stopper are in very good condition.
