Snuff, a powdered form of tobacco from the Americas, was initially brought to China by European traders in the late 16th century, during the Ming dynasty (1368–1644). It was in the 17th century, however, in the early Qing dynasty (1644–1911), that China witnessed a rise of snuff-taking among the upper classes. Inhaling snuff was perceived as more stylish and elegant than smoking tobacco, and this led to the subsequent use and collecting of snuff bottles (biyanhu).
