Vintage Chinese Red-Crown Cranes Hand Interior Reverse-Painted Natural Crystal Snuff Bottle, Artist Signed
Fresh from a 60 year old private Chinese collection is this beautiful decorated reverse painted vintage natural crystal Snuff Bottle. The attractive and detailed Snuff Bottle, which measures 4-3/8" long & 3-1/8" wide and weighing about 1/2 pounds, has been superbly decorated with detailed scenes, on both sides, of hand painted Chinese Red-Crown Cranes.
Important in Chinese mythology and symbolism, the Red-Crown Crane are generally connected with the idea of immortality and thus are considered very desirable decorated motif.
The attractive hand painted "Red-Crown Crane Snuff Bottle is in good condition and totally damage free with the exception of some very tiny "fritzs" on the top rim....to small for my camera to pick up.
My photo # 8 appears to be the signature of the Artist.
Please feel free to ask questions.
NOTE: Only the Natural Crystal Snuff Bottle on the left is being offered.
