my name is david from philadelphia,an i sitting here going over some old blogs on site an came yours however dont know if you,ve have all the info you need on your bottle yet it looks like from pictures you have medcine bottle from the late ming dynasty they were made before 1644
before snuff came to china and they also was used
to hold snuff yet Im taking a look at your glaze
on your bottle and on the footer rim and its not
showing know age signs.
