This well-carved, soapstone seal depicts an adult Foo Dog at the top, with a pup. The height is 7 1/8 inches, and the width is 2 1/4 inches. The front of the square column has a passage in Chinese characters, the meaning of which is unknown. The other three sides are without decoration. The condition is excellent. We believe it dates from the late 19th to the early 20th century. The owner's signature is carved into the bottom. The overall color is an even dark brown, with minor lighter brown streaks. There are no cracks or breaks. There is evidence of normal wear.
