A word of warning

I am currently in Malaysia at the moment and amazed at how many market stalls and shops that are selling allegedly ancient Feng Shui items like Lou Pans, Ba Gua mirrors and temple Lions, they all claim they date back hundreds or even thousands of years and I have to say they look pretty impressive but believe me these replicas are probably only a few days/weeks/months old, whether you are in Honk Kong, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur or Beijing and you are in a normal market type area you are very unlikely to find genuine antiques relating to Feng Shui or other artefacts. I have even seen these items on well known auction sites selling for silly money and outrageously high postage, please be aware these are fakes, albeit very good fakes.

The photos below are of a shop in the China town area of Singapore last week, it is hard to tell from the photo but the display is showing supposable antique Lou Pans (Feng Shui compass), Fu Dogs, Mah-jong sets, Buddha’s, Chinese warriors and much more. I not saying it is bad to buy these items just make sure you pay a fair price as a replica.
