In ancient times, the Chinese used wealth pots because of a belief that they could encourage financial growth which would be retained in the pots. They were thought to be representative of abundance. Today, the practice is often called upon in feng shui culture, believing the wealth pot still signifies the attainment of money luck and good fortune.
