      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.

      Verified Purchase

      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!)

      These look a little better in person than on the computer. I was looking for a wall decoration that fit in an odd place, and these were perfect. I think they were a little pricey, but I had to have something this size. I get comments on them at least once a week because they were exactly what I needed.
