QX #115 & #165


Guanfang Hutong, Beijing

This Chee Hsin cement tile was from Grandaunt Lily’s siheyuan in Beijing. The specs are 77/8″ square, 1″ thick and 3.85 pounds in weight. I salvaged this eight trapezoids 八角星 and the other two before the sale of her home.

Apparently, this design was popular because it could be found in so many homes.

  • #115, central tile
  • #123, border/trim tile
  • #124, corner tile
