Traditional Japanese symbol of summer: Gorgeous glass wind bell Furin Kingyo Goldfish motif

The refreshing sound of these bells helps people escape (or at least make them feel like it) the hot and humid Japanese summer. Originally imported from China, these pleasant sound making bells have been a standard feature of summer since the Muromachi period. (1333- 1568).
This lovely Japanese bell is made of charming red colour glass.
