Last updated by chinatravel at 2013-11-2

With a long history of producing gold and silver articles, Chengdu is one of the gold and silver ornament traditional producing areas in China. The newly unearthed gold and silver ornaments that were produced in the Period of Warring States are of great artistic attainments. For example, the jade volume, ornaments, gold and silver utensils unearthed from the tome of former Shu Emperor Wangjian strongly support the comments on high technological level in the old time.

The ways of making silver handicraft articles are very complex and varied. According to the design, the handcraft workers use the silver thread which is as thin as half of hair to twine gold and silver articles of a relief sculpture of a group designs by the way of stuffing, binding, threading, twisting alternately. On the handicraft articles you can see different artistic quality of floral designs. Such as vivid green pines, green bamboos, plum blossoms, fragrant thoroughwort; peonies in bud, roses, cotton rose hibiscus, Chinese rose; human figures, birds and beasts, insects and fish, dragon and phoenix. They are all charming and artistic.
