Chinese Grey Silk Tassel with Square Ox Charm



Chinese knotted tassels are used to add elegance to everyday items like hairpins or lanterns. They often hold sentimental value, and are passed down through families for generations. In ancient times lovers sometimes gave knots as tokens of their love. This long silvery grey tassel is tied with two large endless knots, symbols of longevity and one of the eight treasures of the Buddha. Suspended between these knots is a square charm carved from white jade bearing a petite ox head. The second animal of the Chinese zodiac, the ox is powerful, capable, and good-natured.
