Unusual Lion & Frogs Ceramic & Brass Chinese Snuff Bottle

This strange snuff bottle is hand rafted from a ceramic bottle encased with brass (Chinese stamp on base). Note, current stock has frogs around the stem & dragons around the top! Measures about 3 x 2 1/2 inches.

During the Qing Dynasty, the Chinese stored snuff in tightly sealed bottles. This resulted in a wealth of artistry in the design and decoration of the bottles. A very unusual and appreciating collectable.
