Chinese snuff bottles have long captured the imagination of Western collectors. Generalist appraisers frequently come across snuff bottles and even entire collections of dozens or hundreds of bottles while working because they were very popular to collect in the 19th and 20th centuries due to their mobility and small size - fitting comfortably in the hand. The purpose of this article in three installments will be to share strategies to assist in the accurate appraising of these petite, exquisite bottles, created to hold powdered tobacco, also known as snuff.

The tiny and exquisitely beautiful curiosities that once housed tobacco are highly prized. Snuff bottles have fascinated Western and Asian collectors since they were first produced in China in the early part of the 18th century. Conceived as precious containers for ground tobacco imported into China, snuff bottles were initially made for the emperor and the court, and eventually produced in much greater quantities for a public who enjoyed their functionality as well as their display as symbols of status. These exquisite miniatures, which measure between one-and-a-half and three inches high, not only illustrate the technical virtuosity of Qing dynasty craftsmen, but also provide a window on life and culture in late imperial China. For example, early 18th-century imperial glass and painted enamel bottles show the influence of the Jesuits at court, and the imperial fascination with Western technical advances.

Tobacco reached China toward the end of the 16th Century. When tobacco was converted into snuff is hard to say but by the mid seventeenth century seems to be likely. Customs records document that by snuff was entering China although it possibly may have been in use prior to that date. Snuff, however, did not come into common usage and was largely a habit of the upper classes. The Jesuits introduced its use at court and soon it became increasingly common among the court, rich landlords and merchants. The Chinese believed that snuff possessed medicinal qualities and that its use helped to dispel colds, cure migraine, sinus and tooth pain, relieve throat trouble, cause sweats and counter asthma and constipation. Snuff was believed to be particularly an aid to digestion.
