Stunning Fine Quality Old Signed Japanese Presentation Piece Snuff Bottle For Sale
Stunning Fine Quality Old Signed Japanese Snuff Bottle
Stunning and very fine quality old signed Japanese snuff bottle. The snuff bottle is in excellent condition except for threetiny chips on the back side with the writing. One is approx. 1/8" and two are approx. 1/4". It has an inlaid etched heart design and I'm not sure what the material is made from. The snuff bottle has a very polished body with wood grain design on the front middle part, but I'm not sure what the body is made from either and it doesn't look like wood and it doesn't look like a synthetic material. There is inlaid mother of pearl above the heart and what looks like some sort of stone with a gold etched design around it.The carvedtop of the spoonlooks likelapis, but I'm not sure. It looks like it was very skillfully and beautifully made and was probably a presentation piece. It is 2 1/4" high not counting the top and counting the top it is 3" tall and it is 1 3/4" wide at it's widest. It came from an estate with a large old snuff bottle collection and I will have other bottles on in the near future.An outstanding addition to a collection.
