    The rebus on this bottle is: Mandarin ducks (thought to mate for life) + lotus = May you be paired for life! The dragonfly's name in Chinese stands for "pure" and "celebration" and is often shown with water plants like the lotus.

    This bottle has a lovely blue overlay on clear glass. The top is real amber.
