Chinese new year paraphernalia : close-up


This is a photograph showing an assortment of Chinese New Year paraphernalia, including red packets, Chinese New Year cards as well as a miniature lion's head, probably to represent the lion dance performances common during Chinese New Year. The character for "rat" is on one of the pamphlets on the table which probably means that it was the year of the rat. Date of creation estimated. Title devised by Library staff.
