The robe is a valuable item in the collection of Chinese clothes in the Náprstek museum because it is related directly to Václav Stejskal and his journey to Asia in 1886-1888. There are written documents such as his diary and letters dealing with the restoration of the robe that were written by Stejskal and authorities of the National museum. In his diary, precise piece of information about the purchase can be found. There is also a photo picture (probably from the 20s of the 20th century) of Mrs. Stejskal wearing the robe and posing in a garden of Stejskal´s villa. It is a very rare occasion having the collection item so well documented.
