Stunning persimmon colored porcelain ceramic foo dog with hand painted gold highlights and all over moriage decoration. Vibrant and brilliant!

This ferocious vintage Japanese foo dog shishi lion is an excellent example of colorful Kutani style moriage porcelain with overglazed enamels, painted by hand with great artistry. The glossy body is a textured red-brown persimmon color, with fanciful raised moriage relief designs in classic Kutani colors of blue, orange, yellow, and white. This a male foo dog, poised with his foot on a sphere which traditionally represents the world or the home. The sphere is reticulated with decorative cuts in a geometric pattern known as the Flower of Life. There are many generous hand painted 22k gold decorations and accents that complete this handsome piece. This brilliant porcelain fu foo dog lion statue measures 8 inches by 7 inches and is in absolute mint condition. There is a very good clear impressed Kutani mark on the bottom, and the original red paper pricing sticker, "Shirokiya Made in Japan". The price is hand written in Japanese kanji characters. Cool!

This is an excellent vintage Japanese ceramic Kutani moriage foo dog shishi guardian lion for striking vintage Asian decor or fierce feng shui protection!
