Subject:Jade Snuff Bottle with hanging loops
Posted By: Daniel Bradbury Wed, Jan 22, 2020 IP: 86.176.212.11

Purchased three similar snuff bottles in an auction recently auction stated that the box was a mixture of brik-a-brak i wonder if this has any age and value? Seems to be of a heart shape with some decoration and has a bat to the base? And two small hanging loops to the top sadly one has some damage to these loops :(

Hi Daniel,
Based on your pictures my first impressions are that this snuff bottle is modern and made from serpentine.

It looks fairly well executed. However, I think it is modern. The bat (especially the eye) looks like it was carved with a modern rotary tool.

Cheers,
Stan

I should add that likely it is meant to be a peach. If it is not obvious, that is not a good sign. The peach and bat are auspicious symbols in China.

Cheers,
Stan
