Here's a large pair of vintage famille verte (green family color) Foo Dogs. These are vintage 20th century examples, quite large at 12.5 inches tall. They are in perfect shape, but because of the way they are made, always have glaze imperfections and other insignificant factory issues as they are made in large group kilns. No chips cracks or damage. They are male and female; the male with his paw on the world, and the female with her paw on a pup. The female is yin in spirit, nurturing and protective of a home's occupants, while the male is yang in spirit, protecting the dwelling itself. Properly displayed, Foo Dogs are together, with the female on the left and the male on the right. However, since they were often located at doorways and thresholds, they are often displayed apart on mantles and bookcases. A matched pair is preferred, and increases the value dramatically, and is the only way we offer them at Tradewinds. Excellent!
