According to historical records, China is the first country to have used the paint from the Xia dynasty, there are some 4200 years ago. Today the lake is mainly made ​​of bamboo molds painted with a layer of lacquer. As civilization has advanced technology and incorporates pigments to create colorful patterns, and a more elaborate decoration. The fact that the paint is waterproof, corrosion resistant and can withstand high temperatures, it is very popular and soon became common in people's lives. Various dynasties have established lacquer ware with their own styles and features and the production of lacquer reached its peak during the Ming and Qing Dynasties. It was during this period that Pingyao has become a major center of Chinese lacquer with a production of great power used for dining accessories, decorative boxes, furniture, musical instruments, jewelry, chess and many other everyday objects. Pingyao is famous today for the quality of its lakes and numerous lacquered objects can be found in small shops around the old town.
