Description

THIS MAGNIFICENT PAIR OF FOO DOGS HAS BEEN APPRAISED FOR $1800.00 (PICTURE 5). THE HAND SIGNED APPRAISAL WILL BE INCLUDED WITH YOUR PURCHASE.

1890-1920 Antique Chinese Polychrome glazed "Famille Jaune et Verte" Porcelain Foo Dogs. (These are originals and NOT reproductions -- see below)**.

One female with her right paw on her cub represents the cycle of life. The male, who guards the sphere with his paw, represents the flower of life. They were made for export to the U.S.A. and were very popular in 1920's interiors (as were many things from the Orient). In pairs they remain popular today and would grace any table or mantle. They are decorated in overglaze enamels in brilliant yellows, greens and browns and having white biscuit porcelain teeth and claws.

**THEY WERE PURCHASED IN MAINLAND CHINA IN THE LATE 1940'S (PRIOR TO THE MAO ZEDUNG [MAO TSE TUNG] COMMUNIST REGIME TAKE-OVER) AS PART OF AN ENTIRE ORIENTAL FIGURINE COLLECTION WHICH HAS BEEN IN MY FAMILY EVER SINCE. AN ARTISTIC SEAL WITH THE WORD "CHINA" WAS USED TO STAMP IT ON THE BASE. A FIGURE WITH AN ENGRAVED MARK OR A SEAL'S STAMPED IMPRINT OF SIMPLY "CHINA" IS FROM 1890-EARLY 1920's. MID TO LATE 1920's-1951 THE WORDS "MADE IN CHINA" WERE USED. (MORE OF THIS COLLECTION WILL BE LISTED IN MY SHOP IN THE COMING WEEKS).

**ALSO, as you can see in the pictures, this pair has a UNIQUE GREEN BASE. Most of the others online here in other Etsy shops as well as on Ebay have a BROWN BASE (including another one of mine that is listed in my own shop).

Measurements: approximately 10" high x 4" wide by 2" deep.

They are GUARANTEED to be in pristine condition with no scuffs, chips, cracks or repairs and also as described.

THEY WILL BE SHIPPED USPS PRIORITY MAIL INSURED.
