A darling porcelain Trinket Box with two darling hand-painted Love Birds on its lid. 

In most Asian cultures, and China specifically, bird symbols mean freedom and happiness, because they are "free to roam the earth and the sky", as well as sometimes swim (depending on species). Birds also symbolize good luck and abundance, and many cultures believe Birds are the link between heaven and Earth, and are therefore representative of eternal life. In Feng Shui - the art of  Chinese geomancy, which uses energy to harmonize individuals with their homes - the symbol of birds means new opportunities arising, even in times of adversity.

Two Birds, like these sweet dancing paradise birds, symbolize Love and Commitment.

This little trinket box is the perfect little stash for storing your precious trinkets. Set it on a dresser, shelf or vanity to store valuables, jewelry, or coins. 

History of Chinoiserie
