This is a fine example of this type of snuff bottle, with many Iron crystals in the quartz. The bottle is well hollowed, with a round flattened form and flat footrest. It features a blood agate top and mother of pearl collar. The snuff bottle measures 6.7 cm or just over 2 1/2 inches to the stopper top. Condition: fine antique condition, with a small frit to the rim, likely incurred during manufacture, and it is partially smooth. Iron is a soft inclusion, so many places on the bottle show pits where the iron was polished away as the bottle was made. Nearly perfect, and a perfect example to add to any serious collection.
