Customer Comments and Our Story
The red plum blossom is a very rare winter plum. More commonly, white plums blossoms appear in the spring. Red is symbolic of good fortune in China, and red plum blossoms are a symbol of the strength that comes from surviving a harsh winter, and the good fortune that comes with strength of character. In the Chinese myths, cranes lead extraordinarily long lives and Emperor Cranes are especially magical in this regard. These red headed birds are extremely rare and believed to bring a long life and good health to anyone who is lucky enough to spot one. With a touch of red, they make a beautiful image and are the national bird of China. In Chinese symbology, the number two represents love. Cranes mate for life, so pairs of cranes symbolize a lifetime marriage. Emperor Cranes with pine trees symbolize a very long and fortunate marriage. This would be an excellent wedding or anniversary gift.
