Today I will share with you tea friends the self-report of a tortoise.
I am a tortoise, a silver gilt golden tortoise standing on a silver pot, this is a large silver pot of boiled water designed by Lu Yi designer, I stand on this silver pot as a pot button, then why Do you want me to be the pot button? This will start from my ancestors.
In the initial stage of human civilization, everyone was in awe and fear for many natural phenomena. They often use the method of divination and fortune-telling to check good and bad, begging for protection, and how to do the fortune-telling. The "Liu's Turtle Scripture" says: "The tortoise is one thousand and two hundred years old. Jiabei, and judge good or bad according to the "tortoise sign" that appears when the tortoise shell bursts, and then engrave the results of the divination on the tortoise shell. This gave birth to the oldest systematic script in China-oracle bone inscriptions.
A symbol of refuge and dignity, who would have thought that I, who is always given the title of "Turtle", used to be a refuge god thousands of years ago. For example, the Yellow Emperor used tortoises as totems. At that time, people tried to use my "divine power" to protect the reproduction and survival of the race. In addition to the function of shelter, I was also a symbol of power and nobility. The seals on the official seal of Liehou were all tortoises made of gold all the time, and later the official seals were called "turtle buttons." In the Tang Dynasty, the "New Tang Book · Car Service History" contained: "For the second year of Tianshou, all the fish were tortoises. After that, the tortoise bags of the third rank and above were decorated with gold." So officials of the third rank and above were required to wear golden tortoises at that time. A poet Li Shangyin once wrote: “For the sake of the cloud and the infinite beauty, Fengcheng Han is afraid of the Spring Festival. Marrying the golden tortoise for no reason will live up to the early dynasty.” This is also the source of the "golden tortoise-in-law". In addition to the above,
I still have another characteristic
that has been loved by everyone, and that is longevity. As early as in the Jin Dynasty, a Taoist expert named Ge Hong mentioned me and my crane brother in "Baopuzi·Lunxian": Weisheng Must die, and the tortoise and the crane will live forever, know the life of the tortoise and crane, so follow the way to lead to proliferation, there must be death in life, but my crane brother and I have always existed, so we know that we both live long. Among the traditional auspicious patterns, the pattern of tortoise and crane Qiling is also a frequently used decorative theme. Even in the late Eastern Han Dynasty, when a girl came out of the pavilion, she would bring a gift box with me, and use my longevity to wish the husband and wife grow old together. (Haha, I didn’t expect it, the tortoise still has this kind of use.) To this day, I am still regarded as a symbol of longevity. I have many fans and be loved by many people. Nowadays, everyone should know why the pot button is made into me. The original intention of the designer is to put my own auspicious meaning on the silver pot. Not only the button of the pot is me, but this silver pot is also named because of my existence-"Turtle Crane Yannian" ". But looking at the whole pot, it seems that there is no "Crane", my old partner. Then why is it called this name? Looking at this pot from a distance, the whole pot shape is like a lotus flower, and the lid is like a lotus leaf floating on the surface of the water. The lotus sounds like "Crane". When I stand on the lotus, it becomes the meaning of the tortoise and the crane. . The body of the kettle is firmly connected, and the handle design is ergonomic. The handle is made of copper and ebony. The combination of the warmth of sandalwood and the toughness of the silver kettle is very simple and elegant; embellished with brass, it is more refined, with the kettle skin The "Turtle Crane Yannian" silver pot is divided into three types, namely:
Matte, purple leather and hammered models.
The matte is deep and restrained, the purple skin is simple and moist, and the hammer pattern is delicate and delicate. The body of the kettle is full and round. As a boiling kettle, water comes out of the cup quickly and powerfully. The whole process is completed in one go. This is the "Turtle and Crane Yannian" silver pot made by Lu Yi's designer. When everyone picked up me and the lid, they also picked up full blessings. I am here to accompany you to make tea and accompany you. Feel life together.
