Nesting Snuff Bottle as known as 套料鼻烟壶 About Snuff Bottle: "Chinese snuff bottles were only made in the Qing Dynasty, which started in 1644 and ended in 1911. Because of the extraordinary variety of styles, techniques and materials found in these small objects, and the exquisite craftsmanship which was lavished upon them, these miniature masterpieces became one of the most important representations of the applied arts during the Qing Dynasty." Water Lily's symbolism: "Spiritual flower of great reverence, living in the darkest of mud ponds, it eventually emerges into a blossom full of color and beauty. Symbolizing life can rise to great achievements from the humblest of beginnings. In Chinese context: 出淤泥而不染" Peony's symbolism: Referred as The King of Flower. "During the Sui and Tang dynasties they were planted at the Imperial Palace. Because of this, peony symbolism also includes nobility, honor, and wealth." ; 1st Jewellery
