Old Beijing street performers

I have just added a few items to my online shop and thought I would share a photo of one of them here: 4 men with 5 string instruments performing in a cross-linked fashion. With one hand playing on his instrument and the other reaching out for the next musical instrument, they perform in a neatly coordinated manner.

This set of two gaiwans reflects everyday, entertaining art forms of the past that are limited to select tea houses in China today and reminisced by older generations of Beijingers. They are now available in my teaware collection to anyone who is keen to bring home a piece of old Beijing.
