DURING THE 17th CENTURY, THE TAKING OF SNUFF BECAME A POPULAR CHINESE PRACTICE. ALTHOUGH IT WAS NOT ACCEPTABLE FOR THE CHINESE TO SMOKE TOBACCO, SNUFF WAS CONSIDERED MEDICINAL. ACCORDINGLY, THE SNUFF BOTTLE DEVELOPED IN THE LATTER PART OF THE CENTURY AND WAS BASED ON THE CONCEPTS OF THE CHINESE MEDICINE BOTTLES (YAO PING).

MANY OF THESE CABINET BOTTLES WERE NOT WELL HOLLOWED. AT THE SAME TIME, MOTIFS WERE MORE FLAMBOYANT. TODAY, SNUFF BOTTLES ARE HIGHLY PRIZED AND COLLECTED WORLDWIDE.
