Part of my mother’s estate and collections. Gorgeous, hand carved antique Chinese ox bone snuff bottle features engraved, detailed gardens, pagodas, trees, shrubbery, birds, and one spectacularly embossed and engraved courtesan on each sideeach is different from the other. Features an equally ornate cap, which seems to be stuck 1/2 open. I’m sure it has a snuff spoon, but I cannot get to it without potentially breaking the cork, or the spoon, or the cap (or all 3). Signed on the bottom. Beautifully done, this is one of the most elegant of snuff bottles. Unsure of maker (can’t read it); from the last quarter of the 19th century. No damage anywhere that I can see. 2 7/8″ tall x 2″ wide x 1 deep. NOTE: As of January 27, 2013, the United States Postal Service significantly raised their rates again up to 21% on some services!
