What brings happiness in life? The Chinese believe happiness is five-fold: wealth, luck, prosperity, double happiness and longevity. The coin symbolizes wealth, the gourd is luck, and the monkey represents prosperity. A pair of Mandarin ducks symbolize double happiness, or a harmonious love relationship. And the pine bough represents a long life. Put it all together in a red bag (an auspicious color in China) and you’re sure to increase your happiness. Cast in pewter. Sold as a set of five in a red organza bag.
