Item Details
Description
A CELADON JADE 'INTEGRAL DISH' SNUFF BOTTLE, QING DYNASTY
China, 18th century. Carved with a circular concave panel serving as a snuff dish to either side, the semitranslucent stone of a deep celadon tone with cloudy white inclusions and brown shadings, creating dramatic silhouette compositions in and around the panels. Of flattened ovoid form with a broad oval foot and a slightly spreading neck.

Provenance: From a private collection in Los Angeles, California.
Condition: Very good condition with minor wear, small nibbles to foot and mouth, the stone with natural fissures, some of which may have developed into small hairline cracks over time.

Stopper: Mottled green jade cabochon with finely carved spoon
Weight: 107.0 g
Dimensions: Height including stopper 68 mm. Diameter neck 12 mm and mouth 6 mm

Circular panels framed by a raised border were a feature of early snuff bottle production, as we know from a Yongzheng-marked turquoise bottle in the Susan Ault Collection (Snuff Bottles of the Ch'ing Dynasty, p. 59, no. 38). The form is intriguing, particularly in light of the controversy over the evolution of the snuff dish. Both sides are distinctly concave and deliberately dished, and there seems no decorative reason for such a feature. Their creation would have required additional manipulation by the lapidary, with no discernible aesthetic advantage. In this case, at least, we may safely assume the intention of the maker to have been the provision of a bottle with integral, functional snuff dishes.

Auction result comparison: Compare with a related glass snuff bottle at Bonhams Hong Kong in Fine Chinese Art on 28 November 2011, lot 68, sold for HKD 212,500.
