Snuff Bottle with Figures in Landscape


Description Exhibitions Provenance Inscription Credit
Description This enamel on metal snuff bottle was very attractively painted and then fired illustrating figures in a garden-like landscape. The neck has a traditional key motif border and an original metal stopper. On the underside is a black Qianlong [Ch'ien-lung] mark underglaze. This is a probably the work of Cantonese crafstmen in the late 18th or early 19th century and constitutes a pair with Walters 44.704 despite having unique illustrations.
