The best white jade in the world is called "mutton fat", for its pure white color and oily, soft luster. The most valuable ones come from He Tian, a town in Northwest China with rivers that produce the prized namesake jade.
This wonderful bottle is carved from a fine piece of white jade. The jade is a pure, saturated, lustrous white with no inclusions or blemishes. It possesses the characteristics of fine white jades from the region. A beautiful half dome marble encased in brass tops the bottle off highlighting its simple beauty.
This type of white jade is extremely valuable and passionately sought after. This is a rare piece that remains as one of our most important in our collection of fine snuff bottles.
