Bat Bone Cricket Cage
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

Giant Pandas (Ailuropoda melanoleuca) date back two to three million years. Ancient Chinese emperors kept pandas because they were believed to ward off evil spirits as well as natural disasters. There is an ancient Chinese story about how giant pandas got their unique markings. A young girl who was a friend of these bears died and the pandas were struck with sorrow. They wept at her funeral and rubbed their eyes with their arms. The dark color from their armbands was wiped onto their eyes. The bears then hugged themselves and marked their ears, shoulders, hind legs and rumps, resulting in the pattern seen today.
