Description
Small domed disk of white porcelin used in gambling games, like Fantan or in the game of Go.
Object History
This game piece was found in the 1990s underneath the Chauffeur's cottage at Ceperley Mansion (Burnaby Art Gallery today). It bears resemblance to a game piece from Fantan set. There were Chinese Canadians working at the Fairacres Estate around 1912, so it is possible this piece is related to these workers.

Administrative History
Dung Way How (Dong Howe) arrived from Bak Chun (North Village), Guangdong in 1922 as a paper son. He had two sons during his first marriage, but the sons remained in China and one died at a young age. He married his second wife Chow Goon Pang through an arranged marriage. She was married twice previously and had a son from each marriage, but neither of them survived. Chow was from Nam Chun (South Village) and arrived in Canada as a paper daughter around the late 1930s or early 1940s. Both Dong and Chow spoke a Poon Yue dialect. The couple raised one daughter Vivian Dong (Dong Jing Yu) in Canada. The Dong family leased and operated the New Fountain hotel in Vancouver located at Abbott Street and Cordova Street. The family later went on to purchase farmland in Burnaby in 1957. The Dong family moved to Burnaby and operated a three acre market garden located at 6220 14th Avenue until 1972. They grew European staples including celery, radishes, green onions, beets, lettuces, endives, as well as Chinese vegetables such as gai lan (Chinese broccoli). There were two Chinese families in the area, including the Wong family who operated the Wong Chew market gardens 6325 14th Avenue. Dong Howe passed away in 1978. Chow Goon Pang passed away in 2000. Their daughter Vivian grew up in Burnaby and attended Riverside Elementary, McPherson Junior High School and Burnaby South Secondary School.

This audio clip was part of Burnaby Village Museum's "Across the Pacific" exhibit and was accessible to visitors along with seven other language dialects with an exhibit panel that included a map of southern China and Guangdong Province. Viewers were asked to listen to the same phrase pronounced by speakers from different regions in southern China. English text on exhibit panel reads "Mandarin a northern variety of Chinese, was adopted as China's official language after the Chinese Revolution of 1911. Aside from Mandarin, there are many other regional varities of spoken Chinese. Early Chinese migrants spoke in a variety of regional Cantonese dialects such as Taishanese. Some also spoke standard Cantonese commonly used in Guangzhou and Hong Kong."
