Pekinese of old and Beijingers of today use cricket cages like this to hold a cricket on a walk in the park or on the way to a cricket fight., The cage is made of a gourd molded to this shape After being collected the gourd is fitted with a wooden top (here made of ebony wood ) The little cage is then fitted for a small sack for ease of carrying and to protect the critter from the cold . The top is made or carved tortoise shell – so it can breathe, of course.
