SNUFF BOTTLE PEONIES
FEATURES: Completely hand painted, on both sides, within the bottle, are the amazing arts our master artists coneceived and delivered in a meticulous manner. A 3-hair brush dipped in desired color is lowered carefully into the bottle and magic happens when the artist paints with it towards his face. The Reverse-painting technique requires many years of study and apprenticeship and is facing extinction. A splendid, natural carnelian gem tops off each of our bottles which are made with great patience, love and artistry. Price is for 1 bottle. Photo shows the bottle's 2 sides.
