An extremely unique carved cameo agate snuff bottle! The agate is of a translucent white with black and brown inclusions. The artist was cleverly able to utilize the darker areas throughout the design of the bottle. Two beasts were carved out of the brown skin with one on its hind legs, set against rolling mountains and swirling clouds. The bottom rim carved with a simple border. With a carnelian stopper (cork recently replaced for a snug fit). Truly a one of a kind snuff bottle!
