A Canton Enamel Snuff Bottle



CLICK IMAGES FOR ENLARGEMENTS
















The bottle of elongated pear shape, standing on a raised recessed oval footring.

Each face very finely painted in vibrant colours with cartouche containing female and child in attendance.

All the figures are elaborately dressed and set in exterior settings before detailed landscapes, trees and rocks.

The sides and shoulders with lotus scroll-work against a red ground.

Four-character blue enamel Qianlong mark to base.

Matching stopper.

A superb and pretty, highly collectable bottle. More than likely a copy of an eighteenth century example.

20th Century


All good

Measures 3" ( 7.6 cm ) including stopper
