This jade pendant is carefully hand-carved with a scene of a young boy playing outdoors. Above him are swirling clouds and a bat, a symbol of happiness and good fortune. Sometimes referred to as ho ho boys, children were a popular motif in Chinese art, and were considered lucky talismans, especially for prospective parents. This charming pendant was likely once strung from the waist and worn as a blessing for happiness and good health.

“Over the years, I’ve incorporated many pieces from PAGODA RED into my designs. Not only can they balance new furnishings (and often new construction) by feeling more established, but the pieces emanate a sense of rich history, often leaving you wondering where they were in a previous life. These beautiful pieces carefully hand-selected by the team at PAGODA RED, coupled with their unbelievable customer service, make them a must-have for any home.”
