QX #109/159, #171b, #172c

QX #109 or  QX #159

Xisi, Beijing, 2012

This set of Chee Hsin cement tiles were most familiar to me. They had two numbers on the Sample Book: #109 and  #159.

The central tile’s spec:  77/8 square, 1″ thick and 3.85 lb in weight.

Border/trim tiles: I don’t remember seeing them at our homes. (Mei Lanfang’s former home used the trim.) It seems Shanghai utilized them more than Beijing.

Seen elsewhere: in Shanghai, courtesy of Feng Guoyin 冯国鄞. This 1st photo showed QX #109/#159, 171b, 172c and 121b.
