Once a staple in many Asian homes, the thermal flask was always close, keeping Scene Shang water hot for hours, ensuring a steaming cup of tea was just a pour away. They were also popular as wedding gifts, at once a symbol for warmth and a thoughtful blessing for the newlyweds.
Reborn today as a lovely cup, the MAY mug is beautiful way to enjoy your daily brew. Ceramic, with gold embellishments, it’s adorned with subtle motifs like the lotus, lian (莲), synonymous with continuity; the magpie, xi que (喜鹊), symbolizing happiness; and fishes, yu (鱼) symbolizing plenty — well wishes to warm a moment, or serve as a meaningful gift to loved ones.
Bold, robust, enduring. MAY your mug overflow with happiness and abundance.
SCENE SHANG is a contemporary furniture label based in Singapore with roots firmly planted in a rich Asian heritage. Shaped to the semblance of 1930s Shanghai in all its former Art Deco glory, we look to an era replete with blooming exuberance and unapologetic luxuries.
