About

This is a Chinese enamelled snuff bottle, with a hand painted blue and white dragon on either side and a four character mark to the base, which we date to the 1940s. The circular body of this bottle is made of copper or bronze. There is a hand painted blue and white decoration of a 4-toed dragon set among clouds, slightly different on the back and front sides and with a painted border down both sides and around the neck. The stopper of the bottle is also enamelled with a simple leaf design. There is a four character mark to the base and we date this piece to the mid-20th century, circa 1940s.
