Collectors of snuff bottles generally acknowledged that Zhang Rucai has two unique characteristics. One is his antique imitation works, very subtle and vivid, even difficult for experts to recognize, the other is his ancient genre and traditional painting of Chinese Beauty. The ancient genre is filled with emotion with the landscape; while his painting of ancient beauty has graceful figure, smooth and fine lines, with distinguished air of elegance and coquetry.
