For a discussion of the Qing revival of "A Hundred Antiquities" as a motif, see the article by C. Evarts on pp. 11-15 of this catalogue. The 'One Hundred Precious Objects' inlay technique or baibaoqian derives its name from the assorted material used in creating the pattern, such as burl wood, porcelain, jade, mother-of-pearl, ivory, rhinoceros horn, and tortoiseshell. For a discussion of this technique, see Wang Shixiang, Connoisseurship of Chinese Furniture: Ming and Early Qing Dynasties, vol. I, Hong Kong, 1990, p. 145. For an example with similar decoration, see the set of three sandalwood screens in Zhang Qin, The Art of Ch'ing Dynasty Furniture, National Museum of History, Taipei, 1985, pp. 102-3.
