Item Details
Description
Chinese 18th Century Yellow Jade Snuff Bottle carved to one side using the stone's russet skin & inclusions with a scene of Immortals in Clouds Pouring a container of Water to call up a Dragon; fine polished oval foot ring, the mouth covered with a silver cover to an inserted silver tube marked "MAQUET" for Maison Maquet showing that it was converted in the 19th Century into a spirit lighter with a silver striker attached to another cover. The cover now is an antique cabochon Peking Glass bead in imitation of Jadeite with a small bead finial. Height with cover 3 inches (7.5 cm.). NOTE: The Maquet brothers, Hector and Charles, established Maison Maquet in 1841 to sell their luxury Designs often incorporating antiques.

Converting antique Chinese Snuff Bottles to spirit lighters was a speciality. PROVENANCE: From a private Long Island, NY collection
