The Art Institute of Chicago, Chinese Snuff Bottles

by Michael C. Hughes


The Art Institute of Chicago has one of the country’s finest collections of Chinese art. This includes a most striking group of snuff bottles that are represented in this publication and the attendant exhibition: Small Treasures, which will be on view in the Asian Art galleries October 2015 - January 2016.


This catalogue features 76 snuff bottles form a collection of almost 400. Each bottle has been meticulously researched to create a thorough survey of the wide variety of snuff bottles within the museum’s collection.



This publication coincides with 47th annual convention of the ICSBS, which will take place in Chicago.
