Back to China we go!
Bought this little thing in Shanghai.
I think it’s made from bone or, if it’s a modern ‘fake’, probably synthetic..
I’m guessing it’s meant for keeping a cricket in and taking it with you. Weird.. Something from the olden days of course, don’t see anyone walking around with their pet cricket nowadays! Although…have picture from the wet market which might shock you… Will post it later.
If it is indeed a cricket cage, why the lovely lady on the top? Just for decoration or does this also have a meaning?
Hmmm…get back to you on that.. Or can some one enlighten me??:)
