An excellent Tibetan style gold gilt snuff bottle with carnelian, tiger eye, and turquoise gemstones. Filigree metalwork and heavy gold gilding complete the elaborate work of this antique bottle. Late 19th, early 20th century. However the height of the bottle is shorter as the older snuff bottles tend to be - many of the tourist type bottles of the early 20th century became taller and taller, often well over 3 inches tall. Therefore we think this one is late 19th C. Measures 6.4 cm tall to stopper top, or 2 1/2 inches tall. From a private New York collection.
