Item description

Antique Foo dog with amazing detail work and in excellent condition. My first thought was that he is a Shiwan Mudman figurine, yet the color brown was not widely used. He could be a root carving, yet when you tap him, he feels like ceramic. I was told he is over 100 years old, but I have no way to verify this. There are no maker marks, nor holes in the bottom which were used for forming and pressing in the Guangdong Province . Eyes, face, teeth, and mouth show incredible workmanship by a skilled artesian. I showed him to a local jeweler, who thought the eyes might be sapphires, but the only means of verification is to remove, which of course, would destroy the dog. Bottom line, is that I really cannot classify this Foo Dog. My best guess for age is from 1850-1899. Those who collect, will know right away what he is by the photos. I did not use a flash when taking the photos, and there is no color enhancement. He is 3 inches long, and 3 1/2 inches tall to his highest point.
