Unusually fierce vintage red and black Chinese foo dog guardian lions, with FOUR hand carved rolling pearls in the mouth and in the xiu qiu puzzle balls which can never be removed.  Free Shipping!

This is a very striking and imposing pair of deeply carved antique wood foo dogs. The head and face are dramatic and a bit scary, with super sharp teeth, wing-like ears, and huge red eyes. Their open mouths roar in protest! A round black pearl ball has been painstakingly carved inside each mouth which can never be removed. The ball rolls back and forth when the foo is moved. A stylized flowing mane cascades around the neck and shoulders. Large paws embrace the reticulated puzzle ball sphere, the xiu qiu, which represents the world. Both feature another large hand carved rolling pearl ball inside which can never be removed. A total of four inaccessible pearls, rare and hard to find!! The bottoms show a few very small holes which permitted access to the artist's tiny wood carving tools. The bold red and black lacquer colors emit strong energy, perfect for terrific feng shui protection. 

This fantastic pair of vintage Chinese hand carved red lacquer wood foo dog guardian lions are in very good vintage condition with no damage, chips, cracks, or repairs. There is some light dust, a bit of finish loss, and a few minor surface nicks commensurate with age. Both measure 8 inches tall, 7 inches wide, and 4.5 inches deep. There is an original foil label on the bottom of one which reads, "Made in Taiwan, Republic of China", which helps to date these old wonderful foo dogs.

We love these fierce vintage carved Chinese foo dogs with their puzzle balls and floating pearls. What a strong and stunning display they make. Free Shipping anywhere in the U.S!
