Tien Hsin Cheng on Hatamen Street, Beijing

This is another business card from my father's records of his time spent in China. The establishment was located on Hatamen Street in Beijing. He did not include any photos of this place, but I did find on the site Images of Asia this picture of Hatamen Gate, taken before 1949.

Just did a blog post about the famous Dexing cloisonne workshop, featuring the ad your dad collected.

Your dad's ad seems to be the only piece of evidence that this important art workshop persisted until after World War II.
