Extracted from my crowded display cabinet ;-)
My mother bought it in the 70' at a Chinese exposition at Galeries Lafayette, in Paris.
At this time, these department stores, Le Printemps and Galeries Lafayette, held one expo a year and sold modern items, clothes decorative porcelain ware, jewelry, but also few antiques.
I don't remember the price she paid, but at this time, Chinese antiques were very affordable!
Both sides are decorated, one with a poem and signatures in red seal.
It is 6.8cm or 2.5/8" high, 3.5cm or 1.3/8" wide.
Coral, oxidised brass lid with cork stopper and bone spoon.
Some brown powder remnants inside!
