This comes from my mother’s estate and collections. Here we have a hand carved Chinese cherry amber snuff bottle cut in a tall, graceful shape, and featuring a carved, embossed farmer on one side, with a signature and a carved scholar on the other. Even the lid is carved cherry amber, with a wooden spoon. If you hold this snuff bottle up to a light, you can see imperfections in the amber, as well as bits of embedded organic material. The colors are lighter or darker red, depending upon where you look. A lovely little bottle! Unsure of exact age or maker. From the last quarter of the 19th century. No damage anywhere that I can see. 3 1/4″ tall x 1 5/8″ wide x 1 1/4 thick.
