Hello. My name is Andrew, and I am new to the group. I began collecting snuff bottles as an exchange student in China in 1986. I now have about 90 bottles (with too many that should be culled out :-) ). I am always excited learning more about snuff bottles and look forward to meeting other collectors.

Hello Andrew,

Warm welcome to our small and yet knowledgeable community of collectors.
1986 is an admirable age to collect Snuff bottles. I only started in 2013 and consider quite a newbie.
Looking forward to your sharing of your collection here.

Cheers,
YT

A warm welcome from me as well, AndrewS.
Am I correct that you are from Yarmouthport, Cape Cod?
And a member of the ICSBS?
Just a shot in the dark... :D ::) :o
Best,
Joey

Thank you all for the welcome.  Yes, I am from Cape Cod in Massachusetts.  And to Joey (who I know and who knows this answer :-) ), I am also a member of ICSBS. I look forward to getting to know you, sharing, and learning more about snuff bottles.

Yes, I am the 'guilty' party.  ::) :o ;D
I knew Andrew was joining.
He's spent time in the PRC, and I believe reads writes and speaks Mandarin [Beijinghua/Putonghua].
Welcome again, Andrew.
And a Happy Thanksgiving to all!
Joey
