Classic baby romper with open bottom from South China. Probably from the Miao or the Yi. The fish on the feet should give the baby a lot of money. Traditionally, Chinese children’s clothing is always full of animal symbols. Tigers, dragons, fish or pigs, should not only protect the children, but also guarantee them a great future, with good luck, health, intelligence and wealth. If the romper is worn as often as possible it brings even more luck.
