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. Homes, shops and offices often display wealth pots to magnify career and financial success and enhance business power. Endless good fortune is promised according to feng shui belief when the wealth pot is displayed, especially in the Southeast sector or where the #8 Wealth Star resides. This beautifully colored wealth pot shown here is filled with Chinese ingots, once a powerful source of investment and currency.
