Antique Chinese Carved Walnut Shell Snuff Bottle with Elders.

They have reached the state of Nirvana and are free of worldly cravings. Large, symmetrically shaped, and sometimes intricately carved walnut shells. Are valued collectibles in China where they are rotated in the hand as a plaything or as decoration. Beautiful detail and peaceful faces. Fined Hand craved every inch of the walnut.
