Chinese transitional vase

by Martin Monti
(Prescott, Arizona)

Hello, I am a novice collector of asian antiques, and I would like to share a couple of pieces that i recently acquired. First is what I believe to be a Transitional Ming dynasty vase, that appears to be well painted and in good condition with exception of some firing faults. And a large snuff bottle from what I think ids the Jiaqing dynasty. Thanks again for such an outstanding online resource that you have made available to those like myself,
who are novice collectors, and who are trying to find reliable sources of information on chinese porcelain.

Sincerely,
Martin Monti

snuff bottle

Shown is a snuff bottle with a Qianlong mark. Probably from early 19th century. Jiaqing is probably right, judging by the decoration.
