images of antiquities in Republican-era popular culture

I am looking for images of domestic and commercial interiors in Republican-era China that include displays of Chinese antiquities. If anyone knows of good sources and could share them with me, I would appreciate it. I am interested in print images and photographs, as well as films. Movies especially lie outside my area of expertise and I would welcome any comments on how antiquities and their collectors may have been portrayed in modern films. Please email me at lnetting@yahoo.com. Thank you.
