A famille-rose enamel on glass 'chicken and birds' snuff bottle
Attributed to Ye Bengqi, circa 1925-1930
Of elegant pear-shaped form supported on a short hollowed foot, the exterior intricately enamelled with a continuous scene of a hen and her chicks and three birds wandering in search for food, all in a garden landscape with blossoming plants and flowers of the seasons, framed under a ruyi-head border at the neck, the base with apocryphal enamelled four-character kaishu mark.
