The Chinese snuff bottle originated during the Qing Dynasty in the 17th century. Initially, they were practical containers for holding powdered tobacco, which was sniffed for its stimulant effects. However, they evolved into decorative art objects, often made from materials like glass, porcelain, jade, or precious metals. They were often intricately designed and served as status symbols, reflecting the owner's wealth and taste. Today, Chinese snuff bottles are primarily collected for their artistic and historical value, appreciated by collectors worldwide.
