19th century silver bodied Mongolian snuff bottle with inlays of turquoise and false coral elements. The silver is most likely coin silver, 60-80% silver. This Mongolian style snuff bottle has a small foot that rises up to very large and bulbous shoulders, contracting again to the neck with a rather elaborate top and finial. On the front, back, and both sides are 4 elements that have been inlaid. Each has 2 stones of turquoise and 2 stones that want to give the appearance of Indian coral. There is a band of silver wire design at the foot and at the collar. The top is also inlaid with turquoise and false coral. It is a wonderfully well done bottle in terms of the chasing and design applied across the surface of the bottle.
