  • Blue and white Chinese porcelain with a pair of fish, admittedly it might be hard to see the fish until you know that you are looking for them, but they're still a very auspicious symbol
  • Fish in the Chinese culture symbolizes wealth as well harmony, marital happiness and reproduction because they multiply rapidly and sometimes swim in pairs.
  •  Chinese blue and white porcelain has been made for more than 1000 years.
  • The color comes from cobalt oxide pigment, one of the few that can withstand the high firing temperatures required for porcelain
  • The decoration has traditionally been applied by hand, but today stenciling is also used
