    I have one like this that I bought in Beijing, 2009 for $7.00. Mine is small: 3.5"x1.25". I think it is etched and dyed ox bone. I'll post a picture of it. I love mine because it has a rabbit on it. I tried to buy antiques on that trip and was disappointed that every single item I bought could be found here - for less than I paid. I bought some fun kitsch Mao items - and those cost more here. But all the jade? and snuff bottles? I should have saved my money. Anyway I'm a smart shopper even as a tourist. I didn't spend too much.

    I agree w/you! I'm going to post my little hinged box. I would appreciate your comments on my snuff bottle. I think it's from the 1970's that's all I can find out about this turtle overlay "peking style" item. I love it.
