An old agate pebble style snuff bottle cleverly carved to allow the lighter inclusions in the agate to reveal a bug eyed carp or goldfish. A bone bead and carnelian top completes this unusual bottle. The bottle itself measures 4.9 cm or about 2 inches tall. Very cool addition to your collection, we estimate the age is early 20th C.
