More than 200 items and sets of imperial treasures dating back to the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911) and collected by the Shenyang Palace Museum in Shenyang, the capital city of Northeast China's Liaoning province, are now on display at the National Museum of China in Beijing.
These items include ceramics, jadeware, bronzeware, gold and silver wares, silk fabrics, works of calligraphy and paintings, as well as ancient books and documents.
Also on display are more than 30 items and sets of treasures from the Qing Dynasty collected by the national museum.
It is the first time that the Shenyang Palace Museum's cultural relics have been extensively displayed in Beijing.
The display consists of five parts and offers visitors a glimpse of imperial power and etiquette, customs, art and belief systems, culture and armaments of the Qing Dynasty.
The exhibition will last for three months, and special Spring Festival-themed elements will be added during the holiday.
