QX #115/165, #123: 8 pointed stars 

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. Colors were made to order.

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

I salvaged this eight pointed stars 八角星 and the other two before the sale of her home. Apparently, this design was very popular, can be found in so many homes nowadays.
