During the Yuan (1271-1368) and the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644), glass furnaces, or Liulichang in Chinese, were established in this street, hence its name. Antique dealers started their business here from early days of the Qing Dynasty. By the rein of Emperor Qianlong (1735-1795), the street had become a trade center for antiques. After the establishment of the People’s Republic of China in 1949, many book and antique businesses set up shops there, including Rongbaozhai(荣宝斋), a world-famous Chinese antique store.
