Snuff Bottle with Landscape


Description Exhibitions Provenance Inscription Credit
Description This snuff bottle has a pilgrim bottle shape with a glass stopper and a green-stained bone collar. The vessel is painted with a mountain-and-river landscape that wraps around the entire bottle in a red underglaze. The red underglaze is speckled with green, which is a result of its firing conditions.
