Chinese Jade Carp Snuff Bottle 18th / 19th Century
This highly unusual Chinese snuff bottle has been carved out of jade in the form of a carp with a lotus flower coming from its mouth. The stopper is made of coral. It dates to the 18th or 19th centuries and must have been a real talking point novelty for the original owners.
It is offered in good antique condition.
