A 'MUTTON FAT' WHITE JADE SNUFF BOTTLE, QING DYNASTY
Item Details
Description
A 'MUTTON FAT' WHITE JADE SNUFF BOTTLE, QING DYNASTY
China, 18th-19th century. Of flattened ovoid form. A test on the Mohs scale reveals a hardness between 7-8. The pure jade, with one tiny russet inclusion to one side, is superbly hollowed. The stone is of an unusually even cream-white color, and presumably to accentuate this, a slightly glossier surface polish has been applied.

Provenance: French private collection.
Condition: Pristine condition with only very minimal natural flaws to the material and microscopic chipping to the lip.

Stopper: Coral cabochon with an incised and gilt metal fitting and neatly carved spoon
Weight: 85.6 g
Dimensions: Height including stopper 62 mm. Diameter neck 17 mm and mouth 7 mm

Pure white jade was always valued at Court, from the Song dynasty onwards, and much of the finest material was left undecorated, such as the present bottle. Plain white jade snuff bottles in the National Palace Museum collection Taipei are illustrated in Snuff Bottles in the Collection of the National Palace Museum, Taipei, 1991, pls. 111, 114, 116 and 117.

Auction comparison: Compare to a related bottle at Sotheby's Hong Kong, Snuff Bottles from the Mary and George Bloch Collection: Part X, 1 June 2015, lot 172, sold for HKD 437,500.
