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?
