About 150 Chinese time-honored brands, selected from some Chinese provinces and municipalities, are exhibited at a fair in the Palace Museum during the Spring Festival. The histories of many of the Chinese time-honored brands, ranging from local delicacies, liquors, health products to silk and handicrafts, can be traced back to the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911) when their products were exclusive tributes to the imperial family. The fair is held to present the audience with the royal traditions of celebrating the Spring Festival during the Qing Dynasty. [Xinhua/Dong Naide]
