Pi Xiu Pair "Fortune is Smiling" Yixing Clay Tea Mascot
Brand: Yunnan Sourcing Tea Shop
This is a classic statuette motif, a pair of Pi Xiu 貔貅 (mythical creatures which are the sons of dragons and are harbingers of good news) playing with a ball (represents prosperity).
On the bottom there are four characters inscribed "时来运转" which means "Fortune is Smiling" or "Every Dog Has His Day".
If you had some bad news, roll the ball and offer some tea and you'll find good favor with the heavens.
