YunHong Chopsticks: A Work of Art

[ From: David Cheng | Published: 2008-04-28 Views: 2121 | Booked times: 55 ]

Most chopsticks are plain, both in color and in shape. But for parties and occasions when you want to bring out "the good china", YunHong offers just the right matching chopsticks.

 

One of a dozen outlets in Beijing, the YunHong shop in DaShiLar has a large selection of sandalwood and china chopsticks decorated with Peking opera masks, animals, classic novel figures, auspicious flowers, and much more.

 

Their Peking opera series, my personal favorite, comes with five pairs of chopsticks and five chopstick holders for RMB 130. Each pair has a special opera mask engraved in detail.

 

Also popular are the 4 Classics Series (RMB 150), with designs from the most famous novels in ancient China. Although 3 are unknown in the west, the Romance of the Three Kingdoms should ring a bell for video game players.  

 

Other products included engraved sandalwood bowls and spoons, all perfect to make your table set a little bit of Chinese.

 

Prices generally start at RMB 58 for chopsticks and accessories. The shop assistants speak a little English, and they are quite friendly. They told me that foreign tourists love their chopsticks as gifts during their tour in Beijing.
