All, I was doing some recent snuff bottle web searches and came across this site.  Provides great visuals of snuff bottles, but lacks in descriptions.   The "AGGV" eMuseum:

Charll,

Thanks for sharing the link.
An eclectic collection, with a surprising number of amber bottles.

As you say, it lacks descriptions. Looks like they need a specialist curator.

Dear Charll and Tom,

A nice mixture of materials in a Canadian museum.
Especially the Amber as pointed out by Tom is of higher grade. The donor stated as 'K.E. Reif' should be Mrs Kay Reif of Vancouver, Canada.

Cheers,
YT

Hi YT,

I didn't realize it was in Canada. I had assumed it was Victoria Australia.

Dear YT, would you believe that until tonight, when I went to check, I thought her name was Francis Reif?!
 I forgot that her name was Kay, and her husband was Francis,
though I remembered visiting them on Osler St. [or Ostler St.?]  in Vancouver BC Canada.
She was a very nice lady, and brought me homemade butter cookies so I could have a 'nosh' if I got hungry at night,
 during the 1992 Vancouver convention.
She said she didn't want a nice Jewish boy to go hungry in Vancouver...  Roll Eyes Cheesy
Best,
Joey
