It said: 珍藏

珍藏(n) precious/ cherished collection

珍藏 (v) to cherish and keep/ store

珍藏 (adj) cherished and kept/ stored


"珍藏" - save preciously, or treasure/collection, with the word "福(luck)" above and below.

It could be a gift for your friendship, or a fond memory - 情誼珍藏於心底 (Friendship saved preciously in the bottom of the heart).
