China's national trade fair on artworks from State-owned antique stores opened at the Marco Polo Cultural Industry Creative Park in Beijing on Sept 11.

The event, which will run through Wednesday, has attracted about 50 stores nationwide which are showcasing paintings, jade, and porcelain. 

An auction of 600 items will be held during the fair. 

Some of the works are from renowned artist like Zhang Daqian. 

The Marco Polo Cultural Industry Creative Park used to be a hub for Beijing's foreign trade in artworks dating back to the 1960s. 

In former US president George H.W. Bush's diary on his life in China (1974-75), he listed the Marco Polo Store as one of must-dos in Beijing.
