VINTAGE PAIR - PORCELAIN GLAZED CHINESE FOO DOGS

These vintage pair of foo dogs are in wonderful condition. They are 8 1/4 inches in height and 3 1/2 inches wide. The color is tourquoise or blue and I believe they are porelain glazed. The detail in the faces and body of the foo dogs is explicit. I know little about foo dogs but it appears to be a male and a female; the male with his paw resting on a ball and the female with her paw resting on a foo dog cub. My sense is these are a rare find. The bottoms appear to be quite old. The female bottom has two imprinted markings - one asian marking with a number 5 next to it and on the other side a marking (? asian) with a number 16 or 91 next to it. On the male bottom, t is what appears to be a red worn stamp but it cannot be made out. Please see the photos regarding these markings.
