This embroidered symbol is the Chinese character that literally means DOUBLE HAPPINESS. Used in traditional Chinese weddings, its a meaningful way of wishing the newlywed couple happiness in their union.

The wooden hoop measures 5". The embroidery is sewn on canvas, and the back is covered up with a flowery cotton material.
