This beauty was carved out of several layers of glass. The base color is the strawberry pink, followed by dark green to very light green. Meant to look like jade, this glass Peking glass snuff bottle is a masterpiece.

The images are of a pond of lotuses with ducks floating along. The spoon seems to be carved out of bone. The double gourd form is very aesthetically pleasing and symmetrical. The base ring is surrounded by a light green design. Held up to the light you can see the spoon through the pink glass so it has some nice translucency. It is 3" tall and in excellent condition.
