China treasures

So, I went a little crazy at the Dirt Market in Beijing.  Panjiayuan, otherwise known as the Dirt Market (don’t ask my why because the Chinese name doesn’t mean that), is an outdoor antiques market that takes place on the weekends in Beijing.  You can find just about anything there – a lot of which is at this point not truly antique, but fun nonetheless. 

As I said I went a little crazy and ended up trekking around China with a big box.  But everything arrived on one piece.

Turqoise vases (yes, the wall sculpture still needs to be hung)

Yellow vase and crackleware ink container¬† and 3 new snuff bottles to add to the collection.¬† I decided to display them a little differently than before.¬† I think once the coffee table is painted cream, they’ll show up a little better.
