Bamboo cricket cage OTH-248

This beautiful cage is used for a cricket or grasshopper. The scholars of ancient China would use them to bring the natural world onto their desks. Today they are still used, but the men take them to the tea houses and have competitions as to which cricket makes the most melodic noises.   It is made from bamboo strips for the bars and with a bone top and bottom, that have carved Chinese characters on the base and a carving of a Chinese scholar at his desk on the top. He has a singing cricket in a cage. It has a small string attached to the top so the cage can be hung up.
