A rare and important Chinese Tibetan jadeite snuff bottle of Qianlong period (1735 1796 AD) The Burmese jade has beautiful bright green patched scattering among white cloudy jade veins (chwi hua, the flower of jadeite); during that time this type jadeite was most valued, over other type of jadeite. On upper end, a very delicately carved silver dome forms the top, which is carved to have flowering branches, with red coral and green malachite mounted as the flower petals. The lower end has silver cup as the base, which is also delicately carved and with malachite and coral inlaid as petals. A few inlaid gems have fallen of due to age. The cap has a transparent red gem, which is surrounded by 3 turquoise.

Both the cap and the silver spatula are original. During Qianlong quantities of high quality jadeite were imported from Burma, primarily for carving objects for the emperors personal collection. At the same time, Tibetan leaders were very close to the Beijing central government. As reward to these Tibetans, quality porcelain and other treasures like this snuff bottle were made as gifts for them. H 8.4 cm (3.3).
