Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.
That is an Asian style bronze tiger but the cypher monogram is European (and not immediately recognizable - perhaps K & Co). It was likely made in the late 19th Century when there was a great fashion for Japanese works of art that developed after Matthew Perry opened Japan to the world in the early 1850s.
Based on the photos and information provided, and subject to examination, this is:
An Asian style cast bronze tiger sculpture
