I've had this thing in my house for my entire life and I'm trying to figure out what it is exactly. To my untrained eye, this looks like 2 Kanji written top down, the bottom one being 吋 (the Kanji for "inch"), but I can't find the top one. Tried a search by radicals but it's the calligraphic nature of it that is confusing (meaning that I don't know how that character would look typed as opposed to "drawn.")

So, anyone out there know what the top Kanji is? I tried cleaning up the image a bit to make it clearer.

im chinese and i'ver never seen this kanji before, probably some old traditional one, so searching by radical would be difficult i guess
maybe my parents would know this kanji, if i ask them next time im visting them^^

Don't know which kanji it is, but I can tell that it's only one kanji. If the 吋 below it was a separate kanji, it would be of equal size to the one above it.

I thought so at first but then I couldn't find a Kanji that contained that radical so I figured it was its own thing and the top part was separate (once again - I am totally ignorant about these things).

If anything, I imagine it's a slightly different version of this. Means 'longevity'/'congratulations' which seems like the right sort of thing.

Oh wow, that does look a lot like it (especially if I google image search it).

Chineses were obsessed with Long Living, so they had a `hundred` ways of writing this word
