Daruma dolls are a traditional Japanese item that can be found in many homes and places of business. When tipped over, the papier mache dolls automatically right themselves, and they also are considered a good luck charm. When purchased, the eyes are left blank white, and the custom is that one is colored in when making a wish, and the other when the wish comes true.
These original flower vases are based on the traditional daruma design, only with a flat bottom and a long, narrow neck. The eyes are still left blank, so you can experience the fun of going through the entire ritual just as people in Japan do. The fun East-meets-West look is sure to be a wonderful addition to any space!
