We are delighted to offer this very rare pair of vintage Koji porcelain Wucai Foo Dogs guardian lions. This pair showcases beautifully detailed design and amazing Wucai colors. They are in very good vintage condition with one appearing to have a nipped tail as shown in the last photo.They measure approximately 3 high x 3.5 diameter. Each is marked on the base. Foo dogs, or Imperial Guardian lions or Shi Shi as they are also known, are a powerful Feng Shui protection symbol. They were traditionally placed in front of entrances to Imperial palaces, temples, and government offices to ward off evil spirits.
They were sometimes offered as gifts to visiting royalty and dignitaries. The pair comes in its original fabric box. We appreciate your careful review of the photos as they tell so much more than we can articulate; and ask that you zoom in for a closer look at any and all condition issues. As always, we thank you for taking a moment to consider this piece. The item "Koji Porcelain Wucai Glaze Chinese Foo Dog Shisha Lions Guardians Pair Signed" is in sale since Sunday, August 25, 2019.
