This beautiful mandarin pagoda is an island in the midst of Hausmanian architecture very near Parc de Monceau. It was built in 1926 by the french architect Fernand Bloch for the chinese antics dealer Ching-Tsai Loo. "Starting his business in Paris, Loo was almost single-handedly responsible for introducing early Chinese art—bronzes, jades, paintings—to Western Europe and North America"....Real Parisian-50 best kept secrets

I hoped to catch a glimpse into the open window but saw neither shadow nor curious eyes. Tant pis pour moi.
