A pair of Chinese ceramic foo dog vases

A wonderfully characterful pair of ceramic foo dog motif vases. This pair are large, hand painted, individually thrown and glorious!

Foo dogs are beautifully symbolic- male and female- the female representing yin and protecting the dwellers in a house, the male representing yang and protecting the building itself.

A great pair, not to miss! Absolutely charming!

One of several foo pieces we currently have on offer, all listed separately.
