    Can anyone tell me is this is real? History? Worth? Anything would be helpful. This bottle was passed down in my family and I pulled it out the other day and thought maybe someone could give me a little feedback on it.

    Thanks,

    JoJo

      Kyra wrote about snuff bottles that are resin, but sold as the real thing. I've been looking for it for a while. It would definitely help you. I'll try and get back here soon.

      I must just say I don't think the spoon is original, also looks like a plastic stopper. The writing(?) on the bottom is a bit strange too.

      Welcome to CW :-D

      Here is one in the spirit of yours:

      Writing on the bottom may be reverse, as for a seal, but anyway always not of the period it would mean... resin isn't antique material :-)
      Vintage to modern, only decorator value...

      Thanks for your feedback. I have seen the 1 posted in the "example" listed however the writing on the bottom is what got me.
