Letter Writer Figurine with Customer (SH042)
In the old days, Chinese immigrants in Singapore were mostly illiterate or semi-literate. As a result, they sought out professional Letter Writers to correspond with their families and loved ones back home in China. Letter Writers also provided the service of writing spring couplets and other important documents.
In this figurine set, a miniature Letter Writer listens intently to an elderly Chinese woman as she narrates the message she wishes to write. Bright festive spring couplets are displayed on a stand behind him.
