Antique Japanese Bronze Unattached Shi Shi
This offering is for an interesting, finely detailed bronze Shi Shi (foo lion) that was once attached to a large bronze incense burner or container. The Shi Shi has front and back legs spaced-apart, with large ears, a long mane, bulging eyes, and a detailed tongue shown sticking out between its teeth. It also has a large flowing tail. The estimated age of the Shi Shi is from the mid-1800s (Edo). It measures 3-1/2 H x 4 W x 1-1/4 D, and weighs 10 oz. The condition is good, but shows its age with darkened patina and signs of wear.
