Exquisite inside painted glass crystal bottle depicting 7 tigers in a mountain landscape. This piece is dated 1987 which marks the height of contemporary Chinese Arts and Crafts as this coincides with opening up of the PRC and its eagerness to highlight the skill of their traditional artisans. Pieces from this period are much sought after by Chinese collectors since quality has since then declined. The quality of this piece may be recognized by realistic three dimensional details and that it is painted 360 degrees (note that snuff bottles usually are painted on two sides only). In excellent condition this bottle has eight facets. H: 9cm/3.5in and W: 4.7cm/1.8in.
