Cricket cages have been such a wonderful and charming find! The cricket is considered a lucky charm symbolizing longevity in ancient China. It was the custom to offer one to someone moving into a new house, or to carry one in a small box to attract happiness.
They can be used as votives, or slip a small liner inside and fill with flowers on your table. I have a collection on my buffet, and they are a wonderful addition to any collection of blue and white! I've included several photos of displayed cricket jars here. Some are from Charlotte Moss's instagram, one from Suzanne Rheinstein, and some are from my personal collection. They are so fun!
The pricing is based on what I pay for them. Some are harder to find than others, and the price reflects that.
