The main attraction of Chinese Tianjin is the extraordinary Porcelain House (瓷房子, Ci Fangzi, Yuebao House, China Porcelain House), which has taken its current shape thanks to the efforts of local businessman Zhang Lianzhi. All his life he collected antique porcelain pieces. He had accumulated a huge amount of them, and so that the good would not gather dust in vain, he decided to decorate an old mansion with assembled porcelain.
