A vintage oriental blue and white ceramic snuff or opium bottle with stopper and wand. The stopper has a slim wand terminating in a spoon.
The underside bears oriental marks but these are quite blurred and in any event, Chinese marks in particular can often be misleading (though unintentionally).
The bottle stopper still has a cork bung, which is believed to be the original stopper. No visible chips or cracks.
The bottle measures just under 2.5in from the top of the stopper to the base and about 1.5in across at its widest. It measures about 0.625in at its deepest (the bottle narrows towards the base). Exact age unknown but probably dates from the first part, or middle, of last century.
