The legend of Lui Hai
Toads are the world’s most popular tea pets. Their shape is based on the legend of the three-legged toad of Lui Hai, a 10th Century Chinese wanderer who encountered a special water-loving toad that led him to gold. One time the valuable pet jumped into a well. Lui Hai was frantic. Fearing his precious pet would drown, he fashioned a chain of gold coins and lowered it to the rescue. The gold links adorn the toad’s back and the coin in its mouth leads to prosperity.
Is a porcine pet more to your liking? This tea pet pig looks just like a piggy bank and, like the fabled three-legged toad, it represents fortune and wealth. However, he doesn’t give away his luck without getting regular tea showers! Designed by Wang Hong, it is made of authentic Zhu Ni clay. | Dimensions: 7.5 x 6x 5 cm | 3 x 2.4 x 2 inch |
