19th Century Famille Verte Foo Dogs Marked "China"
A pair of famille verte foo dogs made in the late 19th Century (1890's) marked "China". They are each a little over 10 inches tall, the base is almost 3 l/2 inches by 2 l/2 inches. The colors are green, yellow and a sort of aubergine. Please see section where I describe areas that the artist choose not to paint and left unglazed and unpainted.
There are no chips, cracks or repairs.
Please note: 1) The female foo dog (the one with the baby has two areas which were not painted and left unglazed. One is under her belly and one is next to her right back paw. These are not glazed that are missing, they were not painted and left unglazed. Again please see photos. I have included photos from all angles so you can examine the foo dogs as the photos are part of the description. 2) The male foo dog has two areas that were also left unglazed and unpainted - one is behind his right front paw and the other is the on the backside of the globe (the globe is under his front right paw). Interesting to note the top of the base that the foo dogs are sitting on are also left unpainted and unglazed so this was part of the making of these pieces and the artist choose to paint them this way.
