CURIOS

For Indian curios –

Chotirmall – 253 Broadway

Teerathdas – K8 Boone Road

 

For Chinese curios generally, brasses, porcelain, inlaid work, cloisonné bamboo, lacquer work, etc. the visitor must keep his eyes on the windows of shops about town.

Try Lee Tai (P374, 375 Nanking Road) and Ah Mow (near Louza police station); also shops on the Kiangse Road opposite Siking Road, and a shop on Szechuen Road between the Hong Kong and Peking Roads.

The numerous pawnshops may also be tried.

For brass ware, incense burners, etc., and Chinese curios generally, the visitor would do well to try along Szechuen Road and Rue Montauban to the Quai de Fosses, which faces the wall of the native city. Turn to the right up the quai – numerous shops with porcelain, brass ware etc., will be seen. No. 137 Quai de Fosses has a good selection, also shops at the Rue des Missions and Rue de la Porte du Nord. Continue along this latter street to the Shandung Road, where something may be picked up amongst the shops and stalls.
