Thanks for your thoughts. They do have a flat base and look to have been through the wars a bit. If they were Song I would be delighted as I don't own anything man made that old.

I agree with Stan that they look older. I do assume they have a flat base?

Snuff bottles don't usually have handle-type decorations, and they look older.
Also, given that they probably are older than the Qing dynasty, they cannot be snuff bottles. Snuff bottles were not introduced in China before the Kangxi reign of the Qing dynasty.
They look like medicine bottles.

I do not think these are snuff bottles, they are celadon bottles and they look like they could be from the Song Dynasty.

Can any one tell me about these. I think they are for snuff?
