This is a good Chinese hardwood foo dog, sometimes called a temple lion that we date to the late Qing period, circa 1900.

The piece is hand carved as a fierce dog or lion sat on a rectangular plinth, with a brocade ball under its paw. 

The base has the carvers or makers marks inscribed on it. 

The carving has developed a very good depth of colour from polishing & age and this is quite a heavy piece weighing about 0.6 Kg unpacked
