Madame Mao's Dowry (Máotài shèjì)

Madame Mao's Dowry (Máotài shèjì) Review

This shop claims its covetable collection of mostly propaganda items from the '50s, '60s, and '70s is sourced from the countryside and areas in Sichuan Province and around Beijing and Tianjin. Whether they're authentic is up for debate. Mixed in with the older pieces are hip designs from local and international designers. Although this could be your one-stop shopping experience, remember this is communism at capitalist prices: expect to pay around Y100 for a small Revolution-era teapot and nearly Y2,000 for a mirror from the same period.
