Description
Vintage Chinese Reverse Painted Glass Snuff Bottle. China’s deep history of traditional arts involving calligraphy, pottery, and remarkable paintings is a testament to the country’s ancient Roots. One of their intriguing classical artworks consists of painting the insides of snuff bottles — no bigger than the palm of a hand — with careful strokes of a tiny brush. As if that’s not tricky enough, everything has to be done in reverse so that it makes sense when seen from the Front. This snuff bottle in particular is a great example of the effort and time that goes into practising this Trade. The bottle depicts multiple bird and floral motifs, all vibrantly coloured. The stopper has a marble like effect.
