Three boats on the lake, and across the other side a walled house, the landscape with tall trees and birds flying overhead.

ANTIQUE CHINESE SNUFF BOTTLE - SITTING EGGPLANT
Marked China - 1900-1910
Wonderful and Unusual Antique Chinese Snuff Bottle in the Form of a Sitting Eggplant - Marked CHINA - Original Stopper -The stained body, modeled as a sitting eggplant with dragonfly legs and large leaves for arms, with original stopper in the form of a stem. The material is indeterminate. Condition is good as would be commen-surate with age and use with some glue present on right foot from an old repair, old damage to the stem on the stopper which has some old material that has been applied, maybe as a prep for coloring, aIso the back tip of the stem missing, and some residue from an old sticker to the back of the body; a slight separation that does not go though on the reverse, perhaps from age. I think the photos are representative of any issues.It presents and displays very well, and the subject matter makes for a great 'conversation piece' !!
