Description
A SHADOW AGATE SNUFF BOTTLE, QING DYNASTY
China, 1750-1850. Of flattened ovoid form with a sprawling neck and superb hollowing. The finely polished honey toned stone showing playful darker markings open to imaginative interpretation.

He greatly advanced missionary work in Western China, was the author of multiple texts and served as dean of the College of Medicine of the West China Union University. In 1952, he left China and became a professor of physiology at the University of Hong Kong.

Weight: 130.6 g
Dimensions: Height including stopper 70 mm. Diameter neck 22 mm and mouth 8 mm

清代影子鼻烟壺
