What is this, why is it unusual, and what do the images on the bottle have to do with the Meadowlands?
This is an antique Chinese snuff bottle, a couple of inches tall. It is unusual because all the painting was done on the inside of the bottle, through a tiny opening, with a teeny tiny brush. What does it have to the Meadowlands? The heron-like birds? Nope. Those are Phragmites fronds painted on the bottle.
