Chinese Oriental Bronze Metal Foo Dog Figure - Silver Gilt. This guy weighs a solid 6 pounds, and measures 11 long and 9-1/4 high.
Substantial and majestic looking - an excellent statement piece. Small enough for a bookcase or gracing a mantle, but large enough for sitting on the hearth. The dog is non-magnetic, and in places where the silver gilt is worn off, there is some verdigris. If you look through the dogs mouth, you can see a few pin holes of light from holes in casting. This is an estate find, and I have no knowledge of previous ownership.
