A Gorgeous Pair (2) Antique Chinese Foo Dogs Shi Lions Turquoise Glaze Figurew/ CHINESE MARK. Please note I'm not a Chinese expert. The bows and the ribbons, the popping eyes in a different color, everything is so detailed. Please enlarge and examine all the pictures as they are essential part of the description.One statue reads "China" in red underneath, the other has "China" embossed and has a Chinese calligraphy writing. Any help in identifying the exact era is appreciated. The statue with the little dog has a small chip on the edging glaze as shown in last pic. The little baby dog has the tip of the tail chipped (see last pic).
This same statue has an about 1.5 crack in the glaze as shown in pic 11. I'm not sure if the crack in question is a manufacturing defect or if the flaw happened later. They both comes with a round base which is unusual.Or else a nice pair of statues. They stand about 8" tall x 4" diameter base.
