Fine Chinese Snuff Bottles

Welcome to Galerie Zacke’s annual auction with fine Chinese Snuff Bottles. The selection presented this year encompasses 81 bottles from several old collections, most notably the property of a single owner whose bottles were collected in China before 1950. The group shows particular strength in the jade, glass and porcelain categories. Particularly prominent is an inside painted bottle by Ma Shaoxuan, depicting Yuan Shikai, the emperor Hongxian (lot 55). Several bottles in the group are of imperial provenance, such as a rare Famille Rose ‘Doves’ bottle (lot 68). Condition reports, provenance information and literature references are stated in each listing. In case you have any special questions about any of the bottles, please contact us, we are always at your service.
