    A porcelain pea pod! It was bought together with an aubergine eggplant which I will post next.
    It is molded porcelain and the leaves and stems are painted with enamel.

      What has your research from your glossary of snuff bottles told you?

      This one is my favorite!

      Thanks Efesgirl and Valentino97 - that book was just being used to prop up the pea pod - it is a book about hidden meanings in Chinese art

      Ha ha! Well I think this is a really beautiful bottle and yes, probably significant - abundance? fertility?

      The Chinese rebus is fascinating - and yes valentino97 you are probably right about the significance of the pea pod
