Vintage Fine Old 19th Century Carved Chinese Lacquer Ch'ien Lung Cinnabar Snuff Bottle Coral (2)
Two fine and antique Chinese etched snuff bottles. Made in red lacquer with amazing hand carved decorations; there are two sides, each with different scenes. They are in great condition with usual wear for their age. There is some paint on the base, I bought the piece like that and I prefer not try to take it out. In any event the pieces are in great condition. Take a look at the pictures, great opportunity for collectors!
There is incredible detail throughout. The caps are carved cinnabar and have bone spoons. The bottoms have brass plates with archaic Ch'ien Lung reign markings on it. These are fine cinnabar with an intense red cinnabar color that unfortunately my camera could not capture adequately.
Size: 2.90" H x 1.71" W x .82"D Size: 2.43"H x 1.58" W x .80" D
They are in excellent vintage condition.
