Four Seasons Card Case Key-ring Set
The four seasons symbols, which were originally called
the four gracious plants and were Confucian symbols for the
characteristics of learned men are now commonly associated with the four
seasons. The symbols done in mother of pearl on this lovely business card
case and key-ring set are bamboo which represents integrity,
chrysanthemums which are a sign of a productive and fruitful life, orchids
which stand for refinement, and plum blossoms which represent courage.
These symbols are believed to bring these characteristics to its bearer.
The inside lid of the stainless case is polished and doubles as a mirror.
