Item Details
Description
AN 'AMERICAN EAGLE' PORCELAIN SNUFF BOTTLE, 20TH CENTURY
China. The flattened circular body rising from an oval foot to a short cylindrical neck, each side painted in polychrome enamels, depicting the American eagle holding.

Provenance: Slovakian private collection.
Condition: Good condition, minor wear, a breakage with small chips to one side.

Stopper: Hardstone stopper
Weight: 37.2 g
Dimensions: Height 5.9 cm (incl. stopper)

Once American ships began trading at Guangzhou in the mid-Qing period, a range of porcelain wares was decorated with subjects suited to their market. Howard and Ayers 1978, pp. 499-513, make a convincing case for this design having been made to commemorate the 1876 centenary of the signing of the Declaration of Independence in the U.S.
