Product Information

Magpies were seen as happy messengers by the ancient Chinese, reflected in the Chinese word for magpie, meaning ‘bird of happiness’. Two magpies together mean ‘double happiness’, while the Chinese word ‘eyebrow’ is a homonym with ‘plum’, thus the image of two magpies resting on a plum tree symbolize ‘happiness jumps onto the eyebrow’, which can be pictured as a joyful face. The love for magpies has been passed down since ancient times.Every time we see a magpie on the plum tree, we know good fortune and happiness will follow.

古人認為鵲能報喜,故稱喜鵲或報喜鳥,兩只喜鵲即雙喜之意。「梅」與「眉」同音,借喜鵲登上梅花枝頭,寓意「喜上眉梢」。中國人對喜鵲的喜愛自古以來就傳了下來,因此,能登上淩寒獨自開、風韻高雅、傲骨錚錚的梅花枝頭上的喜鵲,也就寓意著幸福美好即將來臨。
