A glass overlay snuff bottle, Chinese, 1780-1880.

The bottle has a white overlay on an opaque turquoise ground.

Each side depicts a similar scene of a figure riding on a donkey, followed by an attendant on foot, amidst bamboo, prunus and pine trees, 7.6cm.

This is a rare combination of colours; the most usual being either red or blue overlay on a clear or white ground.
