Open just over a month, Xi Yang Jing is a small boutique which offers a selection of vintage and antique homeware, collected from Europe, America and Australia. While some pieces are more than 100 years old, they are in very good condition. Xi Yang Jing offers a wide selection of oil lamps and overhead light fixtures ?many of which use colored glass and ornate styles ?with prices ranging from 400 yuan to more than 1,000 yuan. A J&J Hopkinson piano, dating from 1855, is a particular focal point of the boutique, as the classic beauty and style of the instrument have been wonderfully preserved. In addition, there are several classical gramophones, priced between 18,000 and 20,000 yuan, as well as a wide selection of porcelain plates. Several plates in the collection are limited edition pieces, including some which were designed to commemorate Princess Diana and royal weddings. Xi Yang Jing is perfect for those with a passion for objects from days gone by and will appeal to the collector within. It also provides a lovely contrast to the fast pace of life in a modern city.
