The Rat is the first sign in the Chinese zodiac. People born in the Year of the Rat are thought to share personality traits such as intelligence, resourcefulness and generosity.

According to an ancient legend, long ago there was a Great Race between the animals. The order they finished in would decide the sequence of the Chinese zodiac. Rat was able to hitch a ride on Ox’s back before jumping down to sneak ahead and win, which is why as the cycle starts anew in 2020, it’s the Rat’s turn in the ascendancy.

The Shēngxiào Collection is a fusion of two cultures, combining British craftsmanship with ancient Chinese tradition. Each year since 2014 we have celebrated the animals of the Chinese zodiac in turn. In the latest addition, P. J. Lynch’s design beautifully captures the qualities of people born in the Year of the Rat.
