Cranes are symbolic of longevity and good fortune, bamboo of flexibility and strength. This jug has it all! On one side the cranes and on the reverse there is some gently swaying bamboo. These have a machine embroidered texture and the stitches have been painted with cobalt to give a rich blue finish. There are three sprigged buttons on the base as feet. The jug is 12.5cm tall and the base is 11cm wide.
