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. Including the remarkable art of painting pictures inside the bottle, using a tiny brush with hairs at right angles. Even the simplest bottle takes a day to paint. A very unusual and appreciating collectable.

The picture shows both sides of the same bottle
