I found this wonderful little 1930s snuff bottle (I know – kind of ick, but it was so cute!) in an antique shop and had to have it. I loved its color and rounded shoulders and figured it would be a perfect small accent piece for a still life. Instead, even when surrounded by objects much larger than it as well as very orange Japanese Lanterns and “Cuties,” it became the star of the show. You just never know.
