Overview

Nearly 250 exquisite Chinese snuff bottles, delicately crafted from stone, glass, porcelain, ivory, lacquer, enamel, and precious metals, will be on view in the galleries of the Walters’ palazzo-style court. Once personal adornments and handsome gifts, these extraordinary examples of technical and artistic virtuosity were made to hold snuff, a mixture of finely ground tobacco leaves, spices, and aromatic herbs.
