Chinese Carved Agate Snuff Bottle
The bird and the butterfly
Visit the peony.
Too early: no flower...
Skillfully carved using a darker band of stone to reveal this fine scene in high relief, this excellent snuff bottle is in very fine condition and boasts an Imperial green jadeite stopper-spoon. Approximately three inches tall overall by 1-7/8 inches wide. China, late Eighteenth Century to early Nineteenth Century.
