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.

“Over the years, I’ve incorporated many pieces from PAGODA RED into my designs. Not only can they balance new furnishings (and often new construction) by feeling more established, but the pieces emanate a sense of rich history, often leaving you wondering where they were in a previous life. These beautiful pieces carefully hand-selected by the team at PAGODA RED, coupled with their unbelievable customer service, make them a must-have for any home.”
