Conceived as precious containers for ground tobacco imported into China, snuff bottles were initially made for the emperor and the court, and eventually produced in much greater quantities for a public who enjoyed their functionality as well as their display as symbols of status. The ruyi (如意), considered one of the Eight Treasures, was a sceptre which represented power and authority. The head of the ruyi is similar to that of the lingzhi or "fungus of immortality" and the lotus. The name "ruyi" is usually translated as "as you wish" or "in accordance with your desires". The ruyi now symbolizes good wishes and prosperity. This is a beautiful snuff bottle with excellent craftsmanship. Needless to say, this beauty was carved out by master craftsman with excellent quality Jadeite that has no crack. It toke a lot of effort and skill to hollow out this snuff bottle and carved out internal screw thread at the top of the bottle and external screw thread around the cap.
