Wonderful antique stone foo dog bookends, so adorable with the baby foo dog cub climbing up his mom's lap!

These fine vintage hand carved Chinese guardian lions are a mirror image of each other. A fierce female foo dog stands with one paw on the play ball which represents protecting the world or the home. She has a playful cub underfoot, representing the cycle of life and protecting the home's inhabitants. Usually, in foo dog pairs, the male resides over the play ball and the female over the cub. These vintage brown stone foo dog sculptures are complete with both! They protect both the home and its inhabitants, perfect for vintage feng shui placement.

The stone shows lovely mottled colors with striations of rusty reds, tan, ivory, gray, and black in addition to the brown. There are veins running through for a very striking appearance. Please view the zoom feature in the photos to see the fine details of these unique sculptures. Both are highly polished, smooth, and shiny. They measure 4 inches tall and 2 inches square, weighing 1.2 pounds each. They are in excellent condition with just a couple of minor edge bumps on the left bookend.

This is a fabulous pair of vintage Chinese Asian stone foo dog bookends. They are finely carved and so striking, handsome Chinoiserie decor!
