Extremely Rare Antique Chinese Hand Crafted Crystal Phallic Symbol Snuff Bottle
The unusual snuff bottle is shaped as a phallic symbol with a wonderful difference. An old man is carved carrying a child on his back.

The child is climbing the large pillar draped with a large sash. The tip of the pillar is carved with a tortoise.

On the back of the tortoise is a hole where snuff is contained. Interesting suggestive shape and hidden Chinese meaning of a phallic. Very well carved and in nearly perfect condition.

The missing stopper as mentioned and some of the toes of the old man have damages. As in all antiques it is inevitably that some imperfections are hard to detect. The photographs form part of the description. The battery is there for size comparison only. It has nothing to do with the item. Most of my collection is one of a kind. I bought the items because I liked it for myself. They were never intended to be resold. Each item has a story and when possible, I hand carried them in my luggage from all over the world to bring back to Australia.

I would like to thank my customers for their positive and encouraging feedbacks I received over the years. Your friendship and your support are very much appreciated and valued. If an item is not paid in a reasonable time, it will be cancelled and relisted.
