This is a pair of antique, late 19th century to early 20th century, hand carved wood Chinese foo dogs with gilding and red lacquer, each on a raised square plinth base with reticulated design decoration at front of base. Foo Dogs are guardians and really are stylizations of lions. The female holds her paw down on a playful cub and the male holds his paw down on an orb. These are generally placed on either side of an entryway. 21" is substantially tall for these to be quite noticed at an entryway. The estimate is for the pair together and is based on actual recent past recorded auction sales of comparables. Retail 'asking prices' can be higher and vary.
