Peking Glass Snuff Bottle - Chilongs on Pink Snowflake Ground

What attracted us to this bottle are three interesting factors. The first is the unusual 4-sided shape, the second factor is the subject matter of the carved chilongs (4 - one on each side), and the third factor is the pink snowflake glass background. Each would probably be enough to attract us, but together they make a very intriguing composition.

The chilong feature bifurcated tails and appear in white and deep electric blue. the base has a ringed foot that rises up in a lotus form with ruyi designs. The top is capped with a turquoise piece (not sure if it is actually a piece of turquoise or a turquoise colored stone of another sort).

It is in excellent condition and has been well hollowed. It measures 3 1/8" tall and is approx. 1 3/8" across at each side's shoulder. It is 3/4" in diameter at the base.
