The unusual combination of colors on this bottle is enhanced by the impeccable carving and well-composed design. It belongs to a group of overlay bottles that exhibit a variety of colors of overlay spread around the bottle, linked by a common color, as seen here in the green overlay stems and foliage. Another rare bottle from this group from the Ruth and Carl Barron Collection Part I, decorated with a green basket containing four-color blooms on a pink glass ground, was sold at Christie’s New York, 16 September 2015, lot 248. Two others from this group are illustrated by M. Hughes in The Blair Bequest, Chinese Snuff Bottles from the Princeton University Art Museum, Baltimore, 2002, pp. 151-152, nos. 189-91.
