Lavishly embroidered silk robes were a staple of Chinese royalty. These colorful coasters capture just a small glimpse of the ornate folk art once found in the Forbidden City in Beijing. Each is embroidered with the fu symbol for good luck and prosperity, which many families use in decorations for Lunar New Year celebrations. Six embroidered coasters, two of each color, are presented in a silk gift box.
Comments about Luck and Prosperity Embroidered Silk Coasters - Set of 6:
I had acquired a smart-looking set of black, rubber-based coasters in an attractive, brushed-nickel holder, but, became disenchanted with the fact that the coasters collected the moisture but did not rapidly evaporate the condensation. The moisture tended to slowly dry, and, left mineral stains. I spotted these on sale at the NG website at a marvelous price, and, sent for them. They come in a very attractive, peg-latched fabric box, and, are quite lovely to look at. In fact, I use the olive-toned pair as I can't bring myself to use the other, colorful pairs for fear of staining them. But, they really do absorb the condensation well, and, look like they are hand-made - translation - they look like they cost more than the beverage glasses that I use.
Was this a gift?:
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
