I've always loved Chinese lanterns. These magical paper or fabric lanterns add a colorful decor, and date back to Ancient China where they were used to provide light and aspects of Buddhist worship. Lanterns hung at Chinese New Year are thought to scare away the Nian monster and bring good luck. The whimsical lanterns in this bowl are color-blocked and hand-carved. The edge of the bowl is red. Bowl is 8.5" x 6"
