There is only one made in this edition so would make a truly unique gift or treat.

The flowers are from the Paulownia Tree (Kiri), a fast-growing tree with foxglove-like purple flowers and the only tree the Phoenix will alight upon. Planted when a baby girl is born, the wood is then used to fashion articles for her dowry. Traditional national symbol, often seen in family crests.
