Subject:Inscription on Inside Painted Snuff Bottle
Posted By: Mary Mon, Jul 03, 2017 IP: 2600:8801:8a01:0f00:

I hope someone can help. I just purchased this inside painted snuff bottle and hope someone will be kind enough to translate for me. Is there an artist name included in the inscription? I thank you in advance for your help.

The script on the first picture reads:
寳琴戊寅秋末作 Baojin ( Name one of the female characters in the classic Cinese novel Dream of the red Chamber.
Made in the Earth Tiger Year (1938 or1878) at
the end of autumn.
Seal 白 Bai
The script on the second picture reads:
  李紈戊寅秋八月作  Li Wan,(Name of an another character in the same novel.
Made in the same year,autumn, august.
Seal:八三  83
The seals are too simple, just fit for mass production.
