QX #115/#165, #123


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 very popular because it could be found in so many homes nowadays. Colors were made to order.

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