   We just recently acquired a lovely collection of vintage Snuff bottles this is the last one in the collection!

    Here is a wonderful painting of what we believe to be a Teacher with five children. There are two children one has a deep gold color top, the other has a pale yellow top. They are talking with each other. It looks like the teacher has the hand of the boy in the gold color top. Another child in a red top is kneeling and looking on. In front of the Teacher are two boys. One is standing and he wears a pale tan/gray color top, the other boy is shorter and he is wearing a Green color top. He is looking to the teacher and pointing with both hands in the direction of the boy in the golden top.

There are no characters indicating a story is being told, just the usual Red character for the artist signature appears. 

What a stunning piece this is, beautiful artwork can be seen through-out. Most collectors refer to this type of art form as Inside or Reverse Painting, either is correct I'm told.  

    The idea that all of this is painted with a single sable bristle brush, backwards and from the inside? Is a fete I can't begin to imagine. Both the Chinese and Japanese are so astute at this type of artistry that it is just mind boggling to fathom their steady hand, keen eye, and extremely precise movement. No wonder pieces such as these are highly sought after and desirable to collection.

   The bottle measures a total of 3 5/8" tall with lid x 3 1/8" high without x 1 1/8"square and weighs 90.1 grams. The spoon is topped with a lovely cabochon Agate stone measures 21.8mm rd x 12.5 deep and the entire piece measures 2" long and has a short spoon but is in perfect condition. The top fits a little lose, but can be made a tighter by wetting the cork a little bit, allowing it to expand and then it will fit better into the opening.

   What a lovely piece to add to your Snuff bottle collection, or to actually use?
