The present monograph is the first Czech language study to provide comprehensive information about jewellery in China. It focuses on the Late Qing Dynasty (1644–1911) collection in the Náprstek Museum. However, it represents the materials, techniques, and types that have appeared throughout the history of Chinese jewellery-making and shows the role of jewellery in traditional Chinese society. In addition, it also presents personalities and acquisition histories associated with this collection. This work is intended for those interested in the history of jewellery, collecting, and Chinese arts and crafts.
