  • 16 March 2016

The Ruth and Carl Barron Collection of Fine Chinese Snuff Bottles returns with Part II of snuff bottles from one of the most well-known and respected collectors in this category. An active, engaged and discerning collector, Mr. Barron amassed an impressive collection in a period of over 20 years. Possibly best known for its faceted glass and overlay glass bottles, the diverse offering’s highlights include a rare five-color overlay bubble-suffused glass snuff bottle, probably Imperial (1760-1850) a Guangzhou enamel snuff bottle, bearing a Qianlong blue-enamel four-character mark of the period, and a green-overlay glass snuff bottle (1770-1850). In 2008, the celebrated collection was featured in a symposium held at the ICSBS convention in Boston, where a selection of highlights was exhibited.
