Chinese Painted and Enameled Snuff Bottle, 20th century, in Qing Dynasty style (Qianlong Seal 1736-1795)

Item Description:

A Chinese painted and enameled snuff bottle, circa 20th century, in the style of the Qing Dynasty (Qianlong Seal 1736-1795). Finely enameled in the Famille Rose palette with overglaze red and gilt accents. Marked with an apocryphal four character Qianlong mark in kaishu script, and painted on both sides with popular folk image "eight immortals crossing the sea" (ba xian go hai).

The Eight Immortals are a group of legendary xian or saints in Chinese mythology. Each Immortal's power can be transferred to a power tool that can bestow life or destroy evil. Together, these eight tools are called the "Covert Eight Immortals". Most of them are said to have been born in the Tang or Song Dynasty. They are said to live on a group of five islands in the Bohai Sea. The Eight Immortals are considered to be signs of prosperity and longevity, making them popular themes in ancient and medieval art.
