|Title:||TOGGLE WEDDING SHOES|
|Size:||2.00" x 1.50" x 1.25"|
Simple Huang Hua Li (a rare yellow rosewood) burl carving of a pair of “wedding” shoes with an embroidered “Shou” (long life) ideograph incised on the toes. The shoe (Hai-tzu) is a direct pun on the word for children and together with an embroidered ball and long life ideograph the pun was extended to read “Hsiao hai-tzu yu shou” or “may your children have a long life. Carvings of shoes were often given on the occasion of a wedding in the hopes that the union would produce many healthy children. Toggles in the form of shoes were almost always called wedding shoes.
