I bought this for my daughter, she was thrilled. She grew up in a house with these writings and this product really makes her place a home. These characters are traditionally hung to ensure good fortune for the family.

All are beautifully executed in a rich rosewood finish; the set would make a wonderful gift for yourself, for newlyweds, housewarmings, recent graduates . . . anyone to whom you want to wish the best. Suggestions to potential buyers: Make certain to check the measurements; the characters may be smaller than you imagine. Also, if you don't know the meanings of the symbols, you may want to put a small nametag on the back of each one (so you can tell your admiring friends what each symbolizes!)

How accurate was the sizing? Just as the description noted
I really thought these would be a little larger for the money. I read the dimentions when I purchased but in person I was surprised. I had planned on using them in different locations, but they are better in a grouping because of size. Would have returned them but didn't want the bother
