The butterfly is a symbol of happiness as well as matrimonial joy. Butterflies together represent longevity, because the Chinese name for butterfly sounds like the word, ‘repeat’ – meaning a long life.

Ruyi, or Fungus, featured here at the top of the jar, are identifiable by a 3 curved design. They're often mistaken for bats or clouds. This common border pattern is a homophone for the Chinese expression 'As you wish' or 'To follow one's heart's desire'.

Please note: the last base in our current collection is slightly off-centre. The hole in the lid has not been drilled completely straight. This is not visible with the shade on and does not affect use in any way. The 20% discount reflects this. Please see the last photo.
