The Porcelain House of Tianjin: one of the top things to see

Walking around the center of the port town of Tianjin in China, living a #Travelife, we decided to enter a French-inspired building that immediately caught our attention.

The sun glinted off the surface of thousands of porcelain vases lined along its outer wall, while four Chinese dragons stood guard.

Aptly called the “Porcelain House,” it was owned by Zhang Lianzhi, a devoted collector of antiques and fine items.

The 3,000-square-meter 100-year-old house is covered from top to bottom with porcelain ware – from vases
to bowls to plates to figurines. Bits of broken porcelain pieces have been put together seamlessly to look like brand new pieces.

The artful and meticulously designed porcelain museum took Zhang four years to complete and cost an estimated two billion yuan.
