@Zarpia - How large are those?? The shape looks like a set of Japanese tea cups, or something??
Nice finds at the garage sale!! And, as Kenji has posted, these two chinese characters make up a word. Individualy, the first character means good luck, and the second one means prosperity. biggrin.gif
(BTW, I switched the posting to Attachments. Hope that's ok!! happy.gif )

Zarpia: Those are beautiful. (Definetly a great garage sale find.) They look like Japanese ocha (cups for green tea) cups or really big sake cups. I can't find the meaning of the characters is my Kanji dictionary. Bleah...
Tombow - Thank for fixing the post. For some reason I can't attach images =/ so that's why i posted them like that, and since the site reduces it size, well I thought that it will not bother people XD
That is just one cup, it has 1 symbols on each side, the size of that "cup" is like 5 pr 6 inches? I'm not sure, is really heave too.
Mei told me that the symbols mean "Lucky" and "Complete", tho she agrees with the "Lucky" and "Prosperity" that you all told me as well.
