Here is a wonderful very old Chinese foo dog ginger jar in excellent condtion. No chips or cracks on this piece. Some lite crazing indicating the age and two of the tripod feet have some separation from the jar which has occurred over the years and is normal for this style of clay/pottery that was used during that period. The tripod style feet also have the foo dog face on each of them. Pieces 8 1/2" tall and 5 1/2"
It has exquisite colors of green and floral with the lid showing gold tones . Inside the lid is a label of the store that probably carried the piece. What I can tell is L. Werthlimber or Werthzimber & Co. 39 Barclay St. which I believe is a New York address. I am certain this piece is from the very early 1900's and maybe earlier than that. I can find nothing on the Werthlimber & Co.
I am certain you won't be disappointed on this piece.

Will ship this flat rate priority.
