An elaborately carved snuff bottle crafted from a solid piece of orange coral. The naturalistic carving depicts flowers and has been beautifully executed by the craftsman. The piece retains its internal 'snuff spoon' which is likely crafted from ivory. This piece was hand carved in China in the first half of the 20th century, during the early Chinese Republic era. It is perhaps the finest snuff bottle we have had in our collection to date.
