This early 20th century Tibetan snuff bottle is delightfully ornate, crafted with silver metalwork and encrusted with colorful beads. The small bottle has a teardrop shape with a footed base and a long, slender neck. The lid is adorned with a red bead finial and linked to the bottle by a short chain.

Thin strips of braided and looped metal decorate the exterior, now accented by a beautiful patina. Layers of chain-like metalwork drape over the shoulders like necklaces draped over décolletage. Decorating the bottle in repoussé is a mythical beast surrounded by waves and roaring with its tongue hanging out. A true work of art with its sculptural form, this snuff bottle is a fantastic collector's item and unique keepsake of the past.

Elizabeth Krueger | Elizabeth Krueger Design

“PAGODA RED was extremely supportive in helping to pull accessory options together for the Lake Forest Showhouse. After providing them with details and our vision on how we were looking to finish our space, Laurene helped curate options that made it easy for us to edit and finalize. It's also no surprise that the unique pieces we used in our showhouse space were some of the first to sell.”
