Chinese Snuff Bottle Miao Silver Cased Glass Finely Inside Painted

$529.20

About

This is a very good Chinese glass snuff bottle with a Miao Silver case, the bottle being beautifully inside hand painted and dating to the mid-20th century, circa 1940. It is made of a smooth glass which has then been very finely hand painted to its inside with various colored enamels depicting birds and flowers and with calligraphy written vertically down on the top left hand front. The painting has been very well executed. The glass bottle is cased within a handcrafted Miao silver case with fine butterfly detail. The bottle has a polished red glass stopper. This is a very decorative snuff bottle. Notes on Miao Silver Miao silver is not pure silver, but an alloy of silver, copper and nickel with a silver content of about 60%. It is a traditional material for making jewelry by craftsmen in Tibet and Southern China with a distinctive design and style.
