Item Details
Description
Group of three (3) Qing snuff bottles including one (1) shield form agate bottle with carved mask handles and conforming stopper, one (1) shield form rutilated quartz bottle with conforming stopper, and one (1) round form fossilized limestone bottle. Ranging in size from 2 1/8" H to 3" H. All Late 19th/Early 20th century. Provenance: The collection of Gary Glesser of Loudon, Tennessee, by descent from his grandparents, Captain Hoyt and Rachel Holton of Toledo, Ohio.

In the 1960s, Captain Holton participated in a 26-day Admiral Byrd Society trip replicating the explorer's famous transpolar expedition, during which he met the Pope and Soviet Premier Nikita Kruschev. Many items in the collection were brought back as souvenirs from that journey and other frequent voyages.
