Jin Yu Man Tang

The caddy depicts goldfish happily swimming in a pond. Eight goldfish encircle the caddy with a ninth on the lid. The number eight symbolises prosperity and nine, infinite or perpetual. The pronunciation of fish (yu) also sounds similar to the word abundance. The word goldfish (jin yu) sounds similar to gold and jade. The word for pond in Chinese (tang) sounds similar to a hall (tang). Thus the phrase jin yu man tang symbolises the accumulation of wealth so as to fill one's hall (tang) with gold (jin) and jade (yu).
