|2018 is the Year of the Dog according to the Chinese Zodiac. The Chinese New Year technically begins on February 16, 2018....but if you order early you'll have this guy to (hopefully) bring you some luck all through the year! Lucky colors for the Year of the Dog include green, red, and purple....lucky colors include 3, 4, & 9...all are incorporated into this ornament....which is perfect for hanging in a special spot.
Other years of the dog have been/will be: 1934, 1946, 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, 2006, 2018, 2030, 2042
Ornament has been hand cut from a sheet of copper, then decorated/stamped, and flame-patinaed. Each one measures approx. 2 1/2 to 2 3/4 inches wide. Due to the hand made nature, the patina on each ornament will vary and have it's own color characteristics. Tail is stamped 2018, the lucky numbers 3, 4, & 9 are stamped variously on the dog's body, and a small charm with 3 Czech glass beads in green, red, & purple is attached near the top loop.
Hang in a special location all year long....not just a Christmas ornament, but something to enjoy year-round!
