Qing Dynasty Jewelry Loaned to Taiwan Museum

Great to see people getting along with each other.  Interconnectedness!

The National Palace Museum in Taipei is showcasing nearly 70 pieces of the imperial couples jewellery as part of a special exhibition titled “Royal Style” that runs till September, it said. The jewels are on loan from northeast Chinas Shenyang Palace Museum, in a sign of improving ties between Taiwan and China since the island’s Beijing-friendly government came to power in 2008…

They are the first objects the Taipei museum will exhibit belonging to China’s last emperor Puyi and his wife Wanrong, who took valuables with them when they left The Forbidden City in Beijing in the 1920s after the Qing Dynasty was overthrown.
