This beautiful faceted melon form carved agate snuff bottle is raised on a conforming octagonal foot. It has an intact stopper and scoop, and is moderately well-hollowed. It is prettier in hand, since the facets take away some of the beauty of the agate colorations, which range from shades of light gold-brown to a medium brown.
Size: Bottle only 2 1/4" tall; almost 2 1/2" with the stopper.
Condition: The melon bottle having a flake chip to the exterior mouth rim, small chip and small abrasion to foot. It is moderately well-hollowed. Stopper and scoop intact. Good to Very Good Condition.
