“While snuff first came to China from the West, the snuff bottle is an absolute Chinese invention which combines the Chinese and western cultures. It’s said that snuff was introduced to China between the end of Ming Dynasty (1368-1644) and the beginning of Qing Dynasty (1644-1911) by Mattel Ricci. Due to its mild anesthetic properties which help people relax, it was widely appreciated by the royal family, who belonged to the Man ethnic minority. As time passed, snuff gradually took on oriental characteristics and eventually, snuff bottles emerged.”  www.traditions.cultural-china.com
