Dear Giovanni,

     Superlative explanation!

Dear George,
 
     The difference in these bottles, was usually based on their mouth shape.
Powdered substances, like snuff, had a straight 'neck'/ 'throat' /'lip'/ ? ( Internal part of the bottle's mouth ). Others had a curved one...
But snuff itself was considered the 'medicine', George. Not what was added to it.
The Chinese added substances to weaken the strength of the 'medicine'.
Best,
Joey
