this is a vintage piece of carving from China. It is hand carved from amethyst and shows a foo dog with a ball.The dog is curled up with the ball, or what looks like a globe in his mouth.
It is nicely done and the color ranges from a very light purple to a medium shade. The wood stand must have been made for the piece as it fits it exactly. Most likely it is teak and has four feet.
The dog measures about 2" by 2 3/4". The base is 2 1/2" by 2 3/4". Both are in fine vintage condition.
