Hong Kong's First and Last Hand-Painted Porcelain Factory Might Be Forced To Close Down

Since 1928, Yuet Tung China Works, Hong Kong's first and last hand-painted porcelain factory, has been producing 'Guang Cai' ceramic. It's a special kind of Qing dynasty ceramic which originated from the Guangzhou province. These prized porcelain items have made their way to the homes of former British governors Murray MacLehose and Chris Patten, as well as five-star hotels such as The Peninsula and Shangri-La. Unfortunately, due to dwindling business and a lack of workers from the younger generation, the factory might be forced to close down.
