Our beautiful Koi pond plates feature a work of art on the plate, depicting a Koi pond with three fish. The plate is also lined in a brown color rim. The lines, tears, and worn spots makes this plate look like an ancient painting. In Japan, Koi are a symbol of prosperity, good fortune, luck and the Japanese believe that Koi also represent spirituality, wisdom, loyalty and longevity because they live a very long time. A Koi can live 100-200 years. This bowl is a perfect decorative piece, wall hanging, or a beautiful table centerpiece. These plates are also very useful for serving large amounts of food or arranging an appetizer or sushi plate for any house guests. Add our authentic Japanese Koi chopsticks.
