Handsome and striking pair of vintage mid century Chinese porcelain foo dogs with bright, majolica style enamels and classic, hand crafted features!

It is a "true pair" with both the male lion standing over a sphere playball, which represents the world or the home. The female has a playful cub underfoot, representing the cycle of life or the home's inhabitants. Traditionally, the male guards the structure and the female protects those dwelling inside. Their faces have a fierce look about them with big glaring eyes and fangs that show from a reticulated mouth. This threatening appearance is believed to guard against evil spirits.

Bright white porcelain is deeply and finely molded with nice details throughout. Their faces have a wonderful expression with penetrating eyes. The mouth is open and features a hand sculpted tongue and long pointed fangs. They are hand painted with high gloss enamels of yellow and bright green. Blue and purple accents add color and energy to the pair. They sit on a sculpted light brown base.

In Chinese cultural symbolism, yellow represents the earth element and green represents good health, prosperity, and harmony. They stand 6 inches tall and are about 2.5 inches wide. They are in fabulous, mint condition with no chips, cracks, or repairs.

What an amazing pair of vintage Chinese porcelain feng shui foo dogs in the hard to find yellow and green polychrome glazes!
