Carved Chalcedony Agate Snuff Bottles
With much appreciation to our donor Bill Burd, our latest display features a collection of snuff bottles depicting various images of man, immortals, flora, and fauna, giving the illusion of painted designs through the expert manipulation of the mineral’s different colored surface layers.
Although the fall of the Qing dynasty marked the gradual decline of snuff bottle usage and production, these miniature artifacts continue to represent the beauty of traditional Chinese art in a historical context.
Dragons Revisited: In Memory of Charles Kinsey
"Dragons Revisited" shines a light on magnificent East Asian treasures that represent the famed mythological creature, the dragon; featured pieces include robes and porcelain from the Qing dynasty as well as bronzes and iron sculptures from Japan. It is a great honor to once again showcase this concept in our galleries after our inaugural dragon-themed exhibition in 2017, this time in memory of our dearly departed friend, Charles Kinsey.
