Carp jumping dragon gate cake mould


Early 20th century

  • fruit tree
  • 240mm wide x 110mm deep x 20mm high

Very interesting interior decor piece. The mould shows a carp beside a gate bringing to mind an idiomatic expression “carp jumping dragongate”.  Dragongate is the name given to rapids that fish must negotiate in their journey upstream. Just as fish struggle to go upstream so does the scholar study hard to get a good job.
