The prestige exhibition presents 145 gold items from the Dong Bo Zhai collection from Wanli period (1573-1620) of the Ming dynasty, which illuminate the knowledge of imperial gold crafts. Dong Bo Zhai is a private collection of the founder of the Quijiang Museum of Fine Arts in Xi’an, China. Jewellery, tableware, and other items of artistic merit show the social position of their owners, while depictions of dragons with five claws and phoenixes reveal connections with the imperial family. It is possible that these items belonged to the imperial court, or they may have been given to members of the Imperial family.
