This bottle belongs to a group of cloisonné enamel bottles, some with only partial inlay of enamels, of similar design, and many different color combinations, which are now considered to be the imperial output of the Palace workshops from the mid to late eighteenth century. Comparable cloisonné enamel bottles include one illustrated by H. Brinker and A. Lutz, Chinese Cloisonne: The Pierre Uldry Collection, no. 364; one illustrated by P. Friedman, Chinese Snuff Bottles from the Pamela R. Lessing Friedman Collection, p. 128, no. 104; and another by H. Moss, Snuff Bottles of China, no. 272.
Another bottle from this same group of bottles and with a different combination of enamel colors in The Ruth and Carl Barron Collection, Part I, was sold at Christie's New York, 16 September 2015, lot 215.
