This is an amber glass master scent bottle acquired at an estate auction. It is 7" tall by 5" at its widest point. I am looking for information regarding what the paper label on its base means and a fair market value for it. It is gorgeous and in mint condition. All four sides of the bottle are reverse hand painted with little or no wear. The stopper is of green glass - almost jade like in appearance with a cork stopper and red wooden dip stick.

Any information any one may have about it, is greatly appreciated. I have not been able to find much information about these larger scent bottle pieces and hope others might have. Thank you.

    Hi Sandy..

    Not a scent bottle ... What you have is a middle period ( 1880 to 1950 ) Chinese snuff bottle. A nice one at that..
