An antique hardstone Chinese snuff bottle cleverly carved to depict a cicada. Moderately hollowed, heavy for its size. One side has mottling on both wings, the reverse on one wing. Very interesting use of the natural color in the stone. Late 19th C to early republic period. Something different for the diverse collection! Measures long 7.4 cm or 2.9 inches to stopper end.
