    The Chinese Take Out Box Ornament by Cody Foster is a literal and nostalgic tribute to the iconic oyster pail, also known as a Chinese food box or Chinese takeout container. Originally designed to hold oysters, this folded, waxed or plastic-coated paperboard container quickly became synonymous with Chinese takeout cuisine in the United States.

    The origins of the Chinese takeout box can be traced back to the immigration of Chinese laborers to the United States in the 19th century. After settling in the U.S., many of these immigrants opened restaurants to support themselves. The paper pail became the ideal vessel for patrons to carry their food home, thanks to its leak-proof design and ability to keep dishes hot.

    The Chinese Take Out Box Ornament, complete with chopsticks! captures the charm and cultural significance of this beloved food container. Crafted with meticulous attention to detail by Cody Foster, the ornament features the familiar folded shape and wire handle characteristic of traditional Chinese takeout boxes. Its vibrant colors and playful design make it a delightful addition to any holiday decor.

    This ornament is perfect for hanging on a food-themed Christmas tree, especially when paired with other Chinese food themed ornaments such as sushi, sushi platters, rice bowls, fortune cookies, sake, and steamed buns. Whether displayed on a tree or used as a decorative accent in a kitchen or dining area, the Chinese Take Out Box Ornament adds a touch of culinary fun and nostalgia to any space.
