Presenting a snuff bottle of very fine workmanship of Peking overlay glass, depicting a traveler on camelback on the silk road on one side and an Arhat and disciple on the other. It appears a crane is delivering a lingzhi to the traveler, and there are auspicous components to the bottle such as a bat and archaic seal. Full of symbolism! The detail is incredible. Top is made of lapis lazuli and shell, with a well fitting pith cork and a carved hardwood spoon. Truly excellent, a fine addition to any collection. 20th century. Measures tall 3 inches tall, or 7.6cm.
