The particular transparent lime-green colour of the glass in this example is referred to as Xi Hu shui, West Lake water, in reference to West Lake of Hangzhou in Zhejiang province.
Palace Workshop bottles with octagonal faceting are known in a variety of colours, some with Qianlong marks. Most glass examples appear to have quarter-faceted main sides. Most of the transparent faceted glass bottles are predominantly ruby-red in colour and occasionally blue. For examples see, Snuff Bottles in the Collection of the National Palace Museum, Taipei, 1991, p. 210, nos. 261-263; Sotheby's, Honolulu, Fine and Important Chinese Snuff Bottles from the Collection of Bob C. Stevens, Part I, 7 November 1981, lot 2. However, a small number of transparent glass bottles of this attractive and unusual lime-green colour are known. See Alexander Brody, Old Wine Into Old Bottles, A Collector's Commonplace Book, Hong Kong, 1993, pp. 52-53 and 150-151, no. 52, for an unmarked bottle; and Sotheby's, New York, Fine Chinese Snuff Bottles, 2 December, 1985, lot 159, for a Qianlong-marked example.
For an extremely rare Qianlong-marked example incised with a poem to each side, see Christie's, New York, 23 March 1995, lot 165A
