CHINESE INSIDE HAND PAINTED Ox Cow Pine Tree SNUFF BOTTLE

 

 

A snuff bottle is a small container with tiny mouth and flat belly so that it is easy for people to carry and use. This miniature handcraft was a microcosm of the painting and carrying techniques, which prevailed in the Qing dynasty.

However, Painting inside snuff bottle is different than glass painting. When painting a snuff bottle, a painter usually uses an angled bamboo pen with color, inserts it into the small opening in the neck of the bottle and painting in the narrow space inside of it. Therefore, it is more difficult to paint inside a bottle than a piece of glass which needs a special skill and not every painter can be competent at such a tremendous work.

Little Bit History about inside Painted Snuff Bottle:

In the Qing Dynasty an official stopped and sought rest at a small temple. He took out his crystal snuff bottle to take a sniff and found it was empty. He scraped off some of the powder that was stuck on the inside walls of the bottle using a slender, sharp bamboo stick, thus leaving lines on the inside of the bottle. When he left he left behind his bottle which was found by a young monk. The monk saw that the marks inside the bottle produced a pattern and thus the "inside painted" snuff bottle was born.

The "painting brush" of the snuff bottle artist today is not very different from what the official in the story used. It is a slender bamboo stick, not much thicker, but much longer than a matchstick, with the tip shaped like a fine pointed hook. Dipped in colored ink and thrust inside the bottle, the hooked tip is used to paint on the interior surface of the bottle, following the will of the artist.

Inside painted snuff bottles are truly miniature masterpieces which attract artists and collectors all over the world. They are the real unique treasures in the world of art.........
