The object of June

Bottles and bowls. Moulded glass with carved and incised decoration. China, Beijing. Qing dynasty, Qianlong period (1735–1796) and later. Donated by Sophia Chrysochoïdi-Lambridi (2701).

Glass objects begun being produced in imperial and commercial workshops around Peking (Beijing) and other Chinese cities during the early 18th century. They were mainly snuff bottles, tablewares and decorative items, fashioned in moulds. Often two layers of contrasting-colour glass were layered on top of one another and the top layer was carved away so as to expose the underlying layer.
