Subject:Translation please
Posted By: Shea Sun, Jul 21, 2019 IP: 173.73.102.2

Hello forum members,
I just bought a set of new snuff bottles at auction and this one is my favorite. It is about 3 inches long with the stopper and about 3/4 inch wide. The scene and calligraphy appear to have been covered in gold after being painted on the interior.
Can someone please provide a translation if possible?

Reading of the back side,
京劇大師 - Peking Opera Master
宗徳珠雅玩 - Zong Dezhu's elegant plaything
民国二十年 - 20th Year of ROC (1931)
孫星五 - Sun Xingwu

Sung Xingwu ( orig. Sun Yukui)
Famous master of interior paintings of the late Qing dynasty and early Republic era.
Born in 1919 in Tianjin .

The inscription on the front side is about the breading of silkworms.

With regards,
I.Nagy
