Fine Chinese Bronze Life Size Foo Dogs with Patina

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

These two bronze Foo Dogs are a great size for displaying aside an entrance door or fireplace. The patina differs slightly between the two but they are truly meant to be displayed together as a pair. They have very good details and most importantly fantastic expressions which should be one of the critical things one should analyze when buying Chinese art. Be sure to compare these characters to other Foo Dogs and you’ll see what we mean.
