This is a pair of large snuff bottles purchased in China in the early 1930s (approx) The carved sections are on both sides, the metal appears to be bronze and the stones are set in intricate metal braiding. this is difficult to see in the picture. The snuff spoons are metal and approx 7-8 inches in length. They are both set on carved wood bases. Has anyone seen any items like this or similar? This is an old picture taken by my parents, I would like to take another picture and post it if anyone wants to comment. Thank you
