The snuff bottles and the carved jades in the present collection are of remarkable beauty. There are three vases of compressed golden amber exquisitely carved during the reign of Ch'ien-lung of propor tions not often found. Blue tourmaline and rose quartz add variety to the carvings in hard stones. A large and intricate pagoda of fei z's'ui jade is of unusual interest in its emerald and vaporous beauty. More massive are the jade imperial seals of the Sung dynasty, and there are ancient jade symbols used in the ritual worship.
