Cricket Cages


Bat Bone Cricket Cage
$34.95
Chinese Cricket Cages
Handcrafted in China

These miniature cages are made from various materials and today, used as a way of bringing good luck into the home.  In ancient days, the cricket cage was used for exactly what it sounds like: holding crickets.  The cages are handmade and feature a tiny door that slides open and shut.  On the top of the cricket cage is a small hook or eyelet that can be used to hang it for decoration.  Although cricket cages do come in various sizes, on average, they measure about 3x4 inches. 

When it comes to Chinese superstition, the cricket plays a critical role.  Throughout history, they have resembled intelligence and good fortune.  In fact, if a person were to harm a cricket, it was believed they would have great misfortune.  Even today, in parts of eastern Asian, the male cricket will be caged so people can enjoy the song they make.

China Trivia

In the early 1400's, the third Ming Emperor "Yongle" moved the capital of China to Beijing. In 1406 he began construction on his new capital. The Capital consisted of three main sections: The Forbidden City, which contained the Imperial Palace complex; The Imperial City, which was home to the government officials; and the Outer City which was south of the Imperial City and is where the rest of the people lived. The Forbidden City of China is also known as two other names the Imperial Palace Museum and Gugong, although the Imperial Palace is an entity of the City. Both the Ming and Qing Dynasties carried out their administrative duties and lived within the walls of this incredible City.

The Forbidden City, ( so named because common people were forbidden to enter ) was indeed a city. Over 800 buildings containing 8,886 rooms, and covering 250 acres. The entire complex is surrounded by a 32 foot high wall which is protected by a 165 foot wide drainage ditch forming a mote. The city is only accessible by entering through one of four gates which span the water.
