This is a beautiful snuff bottle, with large herons on each side. It comes from Paris, France where it was purchased from a part of a large collection.
The bottle is small, measuring 2 3/8" tall and 1 3/8" wide. The base measures: 3/4" x 1/2". It is handsomely ornamented by herons, which stand on their long skinny legs in an outdoor setting, atop a flat rock. There are green trees on each side.
The "bouchon" is of marbled glass and has a cork stopper with a plastic spoon (the spoon is not original, it is a replacement). The bottom is signed with Chinese characters.
It is in very good condition. There are no visible cracks or chips. There is slight loss to the painted images but there is no overall compromise to the overall design.
