Really lovely old pair of small Asian Foo Dogs. They are hand carved of wood with a deep red pigment and some gilt highlights over. The dogs measure 5" in height and are 3" x 2 1/4" at base. Note the holes to bottom of each one....obviously they had been mounted as part of a Shrine at some stage.....difficult to date but certainly are old and the patina and wear signs would suggest pre 1950's to me. Both dogs have a small wood ball in their mouths which rolls around but are large enough so as not to fall out..
