Change Background

This is a beauty. It is covered with symbols of good fortune. The five bats represent the five blessings; long life, riches, health, love of virtue, and abundance. The pair of carp symbolize love, domestic felicity, fertility, renewal, and abundance. The reddish purple colour brings luck and fame. On the sides see hand carved foo dog lion handles.

The height is 4 1/4" and the width is 3 1/4". I can find no faults on this bottle. it is also very well hollowed. I have shown it next to a snuff bottle of the usual size.

Thank you for looking.
