FudThong is a pumpkin covered box. The meaning of FudThong is quite auspicious as it was used as a form of wealth equivalent to gold. Therefore, Thai people often brought pumpkins to offer to Buddha for them to receive blessings of wealth, happiness, and good luck.
Formerly the small pumpkin box contained skincare and face powders used on the dressing tables of female consorts or was used as a miniature accessory box. Nowadays, this intricate decorative painted covered box can be used as the invaluable keepsake urns for containing a small portion of the loved ones as Thai people contain the lord Buddha’s bone ashes and the ancestors’ ashes for worship, remembrance, and memories.
