the nature of an inside painted agate bottle might present a challenge for the viewer, but an even greater challenge is presented to the artist to paint scenes that almost come to life inside one.
The artist here portrayed, several varieties of seemingly anatomically correct goldfish, 9 fish in all swimming about in a natural habitat
I do not know who painted this piece, the artist might have a reputation for painting similar works.I am hoping one of the Chinese experts may be able to decipher the writing, and be able to tell me the name of the artist
H: 2 3/4"; 7cm
Thank you for looking,
