The third one was called the official room in the Qing Dynasty, and it was commonly known as a toilet. The Forbidden City had no toilets, so there was an “official room”.

The Empress Dowager Cixi is very clean. She has her own official room and it was given by Yuan Shikai. It looks very upscale, beautiful and practical. When not in use, it will be sprinkled with dry rosin fines.

Now, this item is kept in the Beijing Palace Museum.
