CORAL "DEMON QUELLER" SNUFF BOTTLE

This fine snuff bottle was carved from a red coral branch, the Zhong Kui "Demon Queller" or Ghost Catcher holding his traditional Fan attribute. Regarded as a vanquisher of ghosts and evil spirits, and reputedly able to command 80,000 demons, Zhong Kui's image is often painted on household gates as a guardian spirit, as well as in places of business where high-value goods are involved. So this would be a highly auspicious snuff bottle to carry, or as a gift. Brass trimmed coral stopper and brass spoon. Other views here.
