Foo dog - Ceramic - Foo dogs - Pair of 19th C Foo Dog Incense Burners - China - 19th century
Good condition, see description - 7.5×3.5×3 in

A very rare pair of figural Chinese incense burners dating to the 19th century. There is an unglazed ceramic ball inside the mouth of each figure which is free to move around. These clay balls are larger than the mouth opening so they can not be removed or fall out.
Condition: No Repairs, some light scratches and scuffs. There are small old chips to the top rims of each incense stick holder, plus one of the Lion Dogs has a tight, very stable, old hairline on the top of its head which can be seen in photographs.
