This metal strainer features flowing goldfish and delicate cherry blossoms.
Originating from ancient China, carp have been bred for thousands of years, which led to the creation of goldfish in the Song Dynasty. In East Asia, the goldfish is a universal symbol of wealth and prosperity. This is because the Chinese word for fish (魚), also translates to the word abundance (裕).
