Displaying a wealth bowl or money bowl at home has been practised by the Chinese since ancient times. Normally used for food and rice, the prosperity bowl that is filled with items symbolising wealth is believed to attract money and good fortune.
This collection features popular symbols of wealth such as the Zheng De Tong Bao coins, issued during the reign of Ming Dynasty Zheng De emperor, gold ingots and swastika motifs. For those who practise feng shui, the wealth bowls are extremely auspicious as they are believed to accumulate an abundance of wealth. There is a saying that 'If a family has a Zheng De coin, there will be riches and honour for ten thousand years.'
