This absolutely beautiful piece of tea caddy is made of Pewter of the finest quality. Pewter is an inert material that does not react with tea and hence will not mar the delicate quality of tea. The intricate design on the body of the container features nine Gold Fish plated in gold, swimming in a lotus pond.
GoldFish or “Kum yu” is important Feng Shui fish besides Dragon Carps and Arowanas. GoldFish are often associated with wealth because of the word “gold”. Fish is regarded by the Chinese as a symbol that represents wealth attainment, abundance, success, prosperity, and good fortune because of the sound of it in Chinese – ‘Yu’. Likewise, phonetically, the number nine is often associated with ‘never-ending’. Hence a nine Gold Fish image signifies good fortune and wealth luck that will last forever.
The Exquisite Pewter Nine Feng Shui Gold Fish Tea Container is a masterpiece of great beauty and elegance with a touch of Feng Shui, perfect for those seeking oriental decor with style and class. Makes an excellent gift for tea connoisseurs. If you are creative, you can even turn it into a wealthy pot!
