The turtle or tortoise is sacred to China. It is symbolic of longevity, strength, endurance and steadfastness. It is believed to keep hidden from view the secrets of heaven. It is also a sign of immortality.

Snuff bottles were originally used during the Qing Dynasty to carry powder tobacco as smoking was illegal during that time. Snuff was considered a medicine and a treatment for all kinds of ailments including colds, stomach aches and headaches. Once smoking was legal the prized possessions became collector’s items
