During her years as Far Eastern Curator at the Chester Beatty Library Collection, Jan Chapman established a unique system of categorization for these rare objects. This framework enables both the connoisseur and collector to recognize items through various seals and to trace the influences of other materials such as jade, soap-stone and blanc de chine, enhancing their understanding of this little-known field.
