Description
A PALE CELADON JADE MELON-FORM SNUFF BOTTLE, QING DYNASTY
China, 18th-19th century. Well hollowed through a small mouth, carved in relief to each side with a melon growing from a leafy scrolling vine above a butterfly near the base, the translucent stone of an even tone with few opaque icy white striations.

Provenance: From a private collection in Chicago, Illinois, USA, and thence by descent.

Stopper: Carved coral branch with fine spoon
Weight: 101.7 g
