This is an interesting and Antique Vintage Chinese Fu Dog Lion Spirit Two 2 Temple Door Knockers, each measures approx. 6 1/2" not including the knocker, and made out of Brass or Copper not sure which. These are old and not new right out of China. They each weigh approx. 12 ounces. They have oriental writing on the knocker, anyone knowing what is says please let me know.
Please remember that anything handmade is not perfect. There may be some flaws, mostly from manufacture, and possibly from age. I will try to note anything that I see as a major flaw.

Please NOTE, I do not clean any of the jewelry as some collectors prefer to leave the original patina on the piece.
Coin Silver is used a lot in the making of jewelry, especially Native American pieces. Coin Silver is 800 parts to 1000, ie 800/1000 pure silver, whereas Sterling Silver is 925 parts to 1000, ie 925/1000 pure silver.
