A yellow-ground cloisonné-enamelled and gilt-bronze 'floral' snuff bottle
Late Qing dynasty
The teardrop-shaped bottle with a band of ruyi around the cylindrical neck, all vividly enamelled in a combination of white, red, pink and green to the continuous scene of leafy sprays issuing from rockworks, with blossoming peonies on one side and chrysanthemum flowers on the reverse, all against a rich yellow ground.
