Towards the mid-20th Century, when snuff was first introduced in China, it
was believed that it had medicinal qualities and was used to treat the common cold, relieve sore throats, alleviate tooth aches and
used as a cure for migraine headaches. Snuff however was not intended nor was it used for all the people of China, but was limited
in use and availability to the upper echelons of society. It was mainly used by the elite peoples associated with the Qing Dynasty and
the royal court of Beijing. As such, vessels to carry the snuff otherwise known as snuff bottles and or snuff boxes had to be attractive,
ornately designed and beautiful to go with one’s social standing.
