ANTIQUE 2-COLOR JADE SNUFF BOTTLE

Tall, oval cross-section, slightly tapering neck, raised footrim well-carved, the nephrite jade white at the upper half, light brown beneath, the demarcation similar to-- but softer than--that in "Harlequin Jade."  Nicely hollowed, soft polish all over in the old way, remnants of snuff inside, golden tiger-eye stopper (probably not original, as is usually the case), ivory(?) spoon.  Late Qing Dynasty, c. 1900.  See top here, bottom here.
