I always want to add a spoon to IP's. Some collectors like to, and others do not.

The debate always seems to come down to each collectors liking and or beliefs. There are many members on the forum who are against it. They have fears of damaging the interior painting and others like myself don't get that perspective believing they absolutely need a spoon. Just like all bottles, porcelain, stone and others.

Back in the day when snuff taking was a daily ritual, these inside painted bottles all had spoons.

For me, dressing them up again is sort of like bringing them back to their old original glory 🙂


I also feel that a snuff bottle is 'incomplete' if it doesn't have a spoon.
It's like having an attractive flower and cutting off the stamen. It just looks wrong without it!  Wink
