The Archaeological and Tibetan Gift Store, which is located at the northwest of Jianguomen Bridge in Beijing, specializes in various archaistic bronzes.

 

On each side of the entrance, there is a huge Ding, an ancient Chinese cooking vessel with two loop handles and three or four legs. The three-legged Ding is called Ding Tripod. Entering the shop, youll find various bronze articles displayed in showcases or on shelves. A small bronze Jue, Chinas ancient drinking goblet, is priced at RMB 210, while a small bronze Ding in round or square shapes is RMB 380. A bronze Chinese unicorn placed on a shelf looks very exquisite, it costs RMB 1000. In a showcase, various bronze mirrors are arranged in lines. According to introduction, when the sun or a beam of bright light are shining on one of the bronze mirrors, it will reflect the light onto the wall, and the pattern on the mirror can be clearly recognized on the wall. Price for a small piece of bronze mirror is RMB 210. Several bronze bell sets are displayed on a shelf as well. You can pick up a small wooden hammer and strike the bells (4 or 7 a set), listening attentively to what these ancient instruments sound like. And tag price for a bronze winged tiger standing on a wooden stand is RMB 330. All these small, fine items are fit for gifts or souvenirs.
