Description

A beautiful inside painted vintage Chinese snuff bottle with a tiger on each side. The bottle is a hexagonal shape and is made of thick glass with an opaque inside. This has been painted from the inside of the bottle with small brushes and shows a delicate, detailed painted tiger on each side. One side shows a tiger with cherry blossom and the mountains in the background and the other shows a tiger with bamboo and a mountain view. The lid is made of plastic or lucite and has a thick paper rim which would have originally have had a small spoon attached to take out the snuff.
I'm guessing the bottle is circa 1940s, but I'm no expert on Chinese snuff bottles and don't know the exact age.

Dimensions About 5.4 cm long and 4.3 at the widest point.

There is a very tiny chip on the bottom of the bottle as shown in the last photo, otherwise the glass is in good condition. This is a vintage snuff bottle and has some wear to the glass such as scratch marks and some rubbing paint, the inside of the bottle is a little dusty and uncleaned. However the colours are still bright and although there is a little rubbing to the tigers this only shows on close inspection.
A beautiful little piece of art framed in a bottle.
