Gift-boxed Butterfly Tumbler Pair
Size: Tumbler H10cm x Dia 7cm x 22cL, gift box H9cm x 22cm x 20cm
Motifs symbolic of conjugal bliss festoon each tumbler. The butterfly represents romance, joy, beauty and dreams, the chrysanthemum friendship. The peony is feminine beauty as well as yang, the male principle, and the citron, divine protection. Presented as a pair, these 24K gilt pewter tumblers, elongated adaptations of a Qing dynasty Guangxu reign (1875 - 1908) porcelain teacup, make the perfect wedding present.
This pair of tumblers comes in a wooden gift box.
