Liang Yi Museum, a non-profit private museum home to two of the world’s leading antique collections, has just opened in Hong Kong. Located on Hollywood Road, the four-storey museum is housed in a charming renovated 1960s tenement building. Showcasing a wide range of antique Chinese furniture from both the Ming and Qing dynasties, the 300 item strong collection has been amassed over the last three decades. The museum also celebrates the blend of East meets West which Hong Kong has become synonymous with: Liang Yi Museum also houses one of the leading collections of bejeweled compacts, clutches and powder boxes in the world. Over 400 items from the late 1880s through to the 1960s are highlighted and include items from legendary design houses Cartier, Van Cleef & Arpels and Boucheron. These pieces are currently on show in the museum’s inaugual exhibition Shanghainese Deco: Vanities in the Roaring Twenties. –Babette Radclyffe-Thomas
