Chinese Peking Glass Dragon Inlaid Snuff Bottle Antique 19th Century

This quality Chinese snuff bottle has been crafted by overlaying a thick ruby glass over the opaque glass then laboriously cutting it back by hand till the image is created. It dates to the 19th Century and depicts a pair of dragons in clouds. It bears the 'zhi shui' characters meaning 'managing the flood' . The top is a period one but probably a later match.

It is offered in very good antique condition.
