Description
Asian Ruyi scepter with two bats on top carved out of a solid piece of green Jade. Pale green semi-translucent variating Jade; two translucent white veins and a few sprinkles of black.

In Chinese culture, the Ruyi Scepter has a long history not only as a congratulatory gift, but also as a symbol of authority. In China, the term Ruyi is a homophone for "As you wish" or "As you desire" making the gift of a Ruyi Scepter a way to convey wishes for good luck or congratulations, often for auspicious birthdays or significant promotions.

The bat is a symbol of happiness and joy. The Chinese for bat sounds identical to the word for good fortune. Double happiness stands for marriage. Therefore, this unusual ruyi with two bats, was probably intended as a marriage gift to a couple.
