The treasure basin is a treasure in ancient Chinese folklore, which can attract wealth and treasure. It is said that the reason why Shen Wansan became rich in the early Ming Dynasty was due to his possession of a cornucopia. This allusion comes from Zhou Renlong’s collection of different lights: “in the early Ming Dynasty, when Shen wansanwei saw fishermen holding more than 100 frogs, filing things up, buying them with their own hands, and leaving them in the pool.”. Later, it was loud and could not sleep when it was close to the ear. In the morning, it was driven away. It was found that frogs were all surrounded by a tile basin. Otherwise, they would be regarded as hand washing tools. Wansan’s wife left a silver hairpin in the basin. The silver hairpin is full. It can’t be counted. It’s the same with money and silver. It’s the world of wealth. “
As the name implies, the shape of the cornucopia is concave, like a bowl like a bag, which can attract wealth and gather Qi, and generate the geomancy of a prosperous house. Therefore, coins, copper coins, Yuanbao, amulets and other auspicious items can be placed in the treasure basin.
