Double Happiness (border) Ginger Jar Lamp
'Xi' represents happiness or joy and also love and luck. When this character is doubled - only used as an ornamental design motif - it comes to symbolise the coming together of two people, fitting neatly with the Chinese belief that happiness comes in pairs.
This is a popular ginger jar design, traditionally given as a wedding gift to represent a happy marriage.
This version features a pretty blue border around the top and bottom of the jar.
