This is the best quality and most beautiful jade snuff bottle that we have ever had the pleasure to handle! The subject, color, quality of carving – all speak volumes as to why we think this is the best. The color goes from a nearly pure white to pale green to lavender to deeper green. With matching stopper with a lapis ring. The base is carved to a clean footed rim. Condition is excellent – very, very fine. Heavy in the hand for its size. It measures 2 7/8″ tall x 1 1/2″ across the shoulder, and 1 deep (including the very high relief carved dragon). The reverse is also carved with a cloud and mountain scene. You cannot be disappointed – it is that good! Because of the quality of the jade and the high relief carving we believe this item is from the 1800’s.
