Vintage Oriental statue Tiger Pewter lead ? heavy soft metal Hand painted Gong type Bells with Dragons and other decorative designs floral this is a very unique item the bells hang two on each side and it comes with a small wood type stick to hit the bells they make a beautiful sound when struck. the whole piece stands 15 inches tall from base to top of metal hanger the tiger is 8 7/8 long from front of base to end of tail it stands 61/4 tall from base to top of head I can find no signature or ID as to who made this the large bell is 5 inches across next is 4 1/4 next 3 1/2 and last bell is 3 inches across not sure of the age but it does look to have a few good years on it just by the top of bell w the little brass hooks hold the bell to the rope as you can see the string has been replaced with a little bit of everything the piece i thought was a marriage but after closer observation I believe it was made this way it may have loosened up and was resoldered the tall hanger part that is. In closing i took the pictures some using a flash and other not using a flash just to get a different view of the piece. this is why the color may be off a bit. any questions please ask. thanks. see my other Auctions and Ebay store for more neat items shipping 9.50 East Coast and 12.50 West Coast payment methods are pay pal -money orders and checks
