Originally praised for its medicinal purposes, powdered tobacco emerged as a fashionable stimulant among Europe's high-society during the eighteenth century. To accommodate this novel pastime, elegant ladies and gentleman of the era sought to complete their look with tabatières, or elaborately painted porcelain snuffboxes.

This book presents more than one hundred of the finest snuffboxes produced by the European porcelain manufacturer Meissen throughout the eighteenth century. In addition to 250 full-color photographs, this comprehensive catalogue includes detailed descriptions of each item by eminent scholars in the field, as well as contributions that discuss current scholarship.
