An Interview With Chinese Snuff Bottle Collector Vincent Fausone, Jr.

Link to full interview....

Collectors Weekly: Would you say that antique snuff bottles are mostly about the art?

Fausone: Yes, thatís why we collect them. I donít think any of us have ever snuffed. I tried it once just to see what it was like. We donít smoke either. The bottles were made to contain tobacco, but essentially itís the artistry, the craftsmanship, and the beauty which attracts us.

We have 500 members in our International Chinese Snuff Bottle Society, from 45 nations. That doesnít include all snuff bottle collectors, because some people who just donít want to belong to an organization. There are lots of collectors in England, in France, in Belgium, Germany, Switzerland, some collectors in Italy, collectors in Australia, collectors in some South American countries, Brazil, Argentina, Canada, Spain Ė essentially all over the world. Weíre going to have 110 people at our convention in Boston this year.

Strange   that  Mr  Fausonne   does  not mention   the  huge body of  collectors  in  Asia  :  Singapore,  Taiwan,  Hong Kong , and  now  - increasingly  - China

Hey  -  isn't China   the  country where  all these bottles  were  created ?


Peter  @  HK

PS  : many  of the Bloch  collection    bottles  were  bought  by Chinese  buyers  via   proxies
