Welcome to Susan Page Snuff Bottles.

I 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 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?

Snuff bottles 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.

My Ethos

I offer an unconditional guarantee of every item’s authenticity and completeness as described.  Any item can be returned within ten days of purchase if found unsatisfactory for any reason and I will refund the full purchase price on its return.

I believe in the power of connoisseurship and discussion and so will pay for one year’s membership of the International Chinese Snuff Bottle Society for any collector who buys a bottle from me and who is not already a member.
