Tom,

I missed reading your post earlier. It is very informative and enlightening ! Thank you.
It leads me to think of a parallel link -- would be nice if someone has written on the living habit of snuff taking in modern Europe, albeit from snuff boxes, and the development, if any, in the design and manufacturing of snuff boxes.

Your article causes my mind to go back to late 1980's when I was watching a German snuffing right in front of me. He was the then retired German Chancellor, Helmut Schmidt. He was in Singapore and during his visit he visited the German-Singapore Institute where I was the Singaporean director then. This joint-government project was approved by him and the late Mr. Lee Kuan Yew. I was hosting him lunch together with my Chairman. I have not started collecting snuff bottle then. Otherwise I would have taken out my bottle to share with him ( from 1991, I did carry a bottle a day to my office, Tom. I stopped the habit some three to four years later ! )
