1890s-1920s Xhosa Beaded Snuff Gourd with Chain - South Africa Tobacco was always shared with others and rarely taken alone. Pipes and snuff containers were therefore public artifacts in the sense that they were used in communal activities. Beaded examples such as this necklace were worn as decorative extensions of the owner's costume.   For similar beaded snuff bottles, see South East African Beadwork, Stevenson, pg. 107.
