Chinese Solid Mother Of Pearl Carved Fish / Koi Carp Snuff Bottle - Bamboo Scoop:
Here I have my Chinese solid mother of pearl snuff bottle. It's carved on the front with a fish jumping out of a pond, besides some water plants. I believe it to be antique. Inside, the little scoop for the snuff is made of some sort of natural material - I think it may be bamboo?!
In lovely condition, as per the photos. No chips, cracks or damage. I think the little bung which holds the lid in is a replacement, it feels foamy. I imagine it was originally cork but this degraded. Due to this being replaced, the lid doesnt close completely flush with the bottle, but it should be fairly easy to restore if you wanted to.
