Chinese Glass Snuff Bottle With Bird Decorations

NO LONGER AVAILABLE
Description
After receiving the gift of a snuff box, China’s Kangxi Emperor, who reigned from 1662 to 1722, improved upon the Western approach to toting powdered tobacco by replacing the boxes with traditional Chinese medicine bottles. The elegant crystal or glass vessels, fitted with ivory spoons to extract the snuff, soon became a status symbol for Qing Dynasty nobles and eventually, the entire population. This snuff bottle, from New York’s Hadassa antiques gallery, has been painted on the inside using a sliver of bamboo or narrow brush, ink, and color to create warm-hued scenes of birds in marshy landscapes.
