This is a large snuff bottle, 4 inches tall (with top). It has an opaque red-orange ground, with white bunnies, green plants and green grasshopper. It has a hardstone top (probably jadeite). I purchased it at an auction. It was one of a number of snuff bottles that had been consigned from a Massachusetts collector. When I was photographing it the top would not come off. Perhaps there is some museum putty holding it, but not wanting to break it the price is reduced dramatically.
Country of Origin: China.
Size: 4" tall.
Condition: Very Good. Top is not removed.
Circa: Republic Period.
