Fu, Lu, and Shou are three "gods" that are sometimes called the "Three Stars." Separately, they may be called Fu Xing, Lu Xing, and Shou Xing, with "Xing" meaning "star." The three gods -- Longevity Luck and Wealth -- have been popular among people for centuries, which show the traditional culture of the Chinese people who long for Longevity Luck and Wealth.

The Character Fu

The character fu is "good fortune, blessings, happiness." It denotes being happy as the result of being lucky. The character is prominently displayed on doors, often upside-down, as "turn upside-down" and a word meaning "arrive" are homophones; in other words, to say "luck upside-down" sounds like "luck is coming."

The Character Lu

Lu is "official's salary in feudal China"-- that is, a position in the civil service, one of the most desired jobs in old China. The Confucian system of study followed by examination and placement holds sway in all Chinese-based cultures to this day, including Japan. It was certainly a key to "prosperity."

The Character Shou

Shou is unambiguously "longevity."

Canton porcelains are Chinese ceramic wares made for export in the 18th to the 20th centuries. The wares were made, glazed and fired at Jingdezhen but decorated with enamels at Canton (Guangzhou) in southern China prior to export by sea through that port.

Canton Famille rose in the 19th century was typically decorated with alternate panels of figures and birds, flowers and insects, predominantly in pink and green.
