Jin Chan (金蟾) is a mythological creature which is three-legged and spits up gold and other forms of wealth.  It is thought that when offerings are made to the Jin Chan the roof under which he resides will experience a meteoric rise in wealth and good fortune.  It's perhaps the most common tea mascot which adorns tea tables in China.  Offer the Jin Chan the gift of bathing his body in tea water now and again, and see if it results in good fortune!

This Jin Chan is Yixing Purple Clay fired and then "embroidered" with gold paint to give it a gold-plated hardcore rapper kind of feel to it!

13cm from mouth to tail, 9cm at widest point, and 6.5cm tall.
