Lots 1-121 Snuff Bottles: Including the property of an Ohio, a Philadelphia and a Florida collection all to be offered without reserve Since the 17th century, the snuff bottle has been both an endearing and enduring icon of Chinese decorative arts. The small utilitarian bottle is a descendant of the personal, pocket-sized medicine bottles utilized in China for centuries. Its eventual role as a symbol of status and taste took the form well beyond the confines of mere functionality and resulted in a craft that inspired many of China’s best carvers and incorporated the finest available materials. Pipe tobacco was introduced to the imperial Ming court in the 16th century and enjoyed some decades of popularity among the general population until the establishment of the Qing dynasty in the 17th century brought the prohibition of smoking. Tobacco users found some respite in the form of snuff. Considered a substance akin to herbal medicines, powdered tobacco remained legal throughout the dynasty and entered into the social customs of the era as a gentlemanly indulgence. The sharing of snuff among Chinese men led to the snuff bottle’s adoption as a common accessory and subsequent status symbol. Soon, precious gemstones, metals, organic substances and more were being utilized by the country’s best craftsmen to meet a demand for finer and more valuable bottles than those that had come before. The crafting of intricate and precious snuff bottles, which continued long after their function became irrelevant, stands as a unique cornerstone of the Chinese decorative arts tradition. While the finest known bottles date from the 18th century, good examples from throughout the Qing and Republic periods still capture the attention of avid collectors and command strong prices at auction.
