An inside-painted glass 'The White Hair Girl' snuff bottle
Anonymous
Of compressed rectangular form, the cylindrical neck sloping gently downward forming the wide rounded shoulders above a straight oval footrim, the interior painted to a scene of two dancers, the male dressed in the ensemble of the infamous Communist party, grasping compassionately onto the raised hand of his partner with luminous long white tresses and matching white outfits, her leg lifted gracefully like a ballerinas', the reverse depicts a free-spirited dancer with her braid swept to the side, performing with a piece of red string in both of her hands in front of a single windowed dwelling, an ewer on top of a foot stool and a chipped bowl placed outside of the house.
7.2cm high.
