A character slightly more difficult to explain would be
鵡 (tinplate)
which was apparently made up from scratch from the sound of dutch blik...

A variation of 鵡 is 鸚. This time, instead of 武 on the left side you have 嬰, which brings us back to 貝 again, this time with 女. (Also from 漢字源, p. 1742.)

(Ellis, apologies for the thread drift.)
