Magpies symbolize jubilation and were a popular subject in the decorative arts of the Qing dynasty. Compare a contemporaneous similarly painted famille-rose 'prunus and magpie' snuff bottle of domed form from the Ruth and Carl Barron Collection (coll. no. 5330) sold at Christie's New York, 15th September 2015, lot 343. See also a baluster-form example with a Qianlong mark, but possibly produced in the Jiaqing period, formerly in the collection of Colonel James A. Blair, Jr. (1880-1934), and now in the collection of the Princeton University Art Museum, Princeton, published in Michael C. Hughes, The Blair Bequest: Chinese Snuff Bottles from the Princeton University Art Museum, Baltimore, 2002, pl. 207.
