Bats are considered a symbol of wealth because the word bat, (fook) has the same pronunciation as prosperity in Chinese. Bats represent longevity and happiness, so are considered an auspicious symbol in Chinese culture. Porcelain is steeped in centuries of Chinese culture and history. Even though pottery developed in China 15,000 years ago, most experts believe that true porcelain -which also originated in China - didn't emerge in the region until the Han Dynasty -202 BC to 220 AD. The porcelain is glazed using a transparent porcelain glaze dating back to the Tang Dynasty - 618 - 907.
