( Post Time:April 28,2012 By Zoe Luo)
People might be shocked by the first sight of this house. As it is so different with the ones we used to known and seen. It is a “Realm of Porcelain”, a real "Porcelain House"!
The Porcelain House is originally a French-style building standing on 72 Chifeng Road. It is said that the Porcelain House is decorated with about 400 million pieces of ancient Chinese ceramic chips and over 13,000 ancient Chinese porcelain vases, plates and bowls. Creative design and various priced decorations made it an unique priceless artistic work.

All the porcelain pieces that decorated this house are said to be precious collections of Lianzhi Zhang, its owner. None of the porcelain is modern product, but antiques that have at least 200 years of history, ranging from Jin Dynasty to Qing Dynasty. Some of them are even treasures produced by 5 great ancient kilns like Jun Kiln and Ru Kiln in Henan Province.
