Up for sale is a fine quality Chinese export porcelain Blanc de Chine buddhist lion or foo dog. It was covered with a crackled lavender glaze. Traditionally, foo dogs or foo lions are commonly found near temples, garden entrances and homes for they are considered protectors of buildings and guard against evil spirits. We believe they would make an excellent addition to your oriental deco. The piece is in good condition except old restoration at the tail and stick holder which was very hard to tell.
