Welcome to Susan Page Snuff Bottles.
My objective is to help clients form a collection of Chinese Snuff Bottles
I specialise in bottles made for use during the 18th and 19th centuries, and inside-painted examples from the 20th Century. I want to help collectors through the learning curve by drawing on my own experience in buying and selling bottles. My intent is to help avoid the pitfalls of buying fakes or recent bottles, and I scrutinize each piece for damage or restoration.
Why form a collection of snuff bottles ?
They are very attractive: beautiful and tactile, they are small and don’t take up much room. They are interesting; many illustrate legends and fables, and many more have symbolism attached to them. Their variety is endless, and the historical period in which they were made is fascinating.
