Foo Dog on a ball Fruitwood netsuke
I was able to handpick the best quality from a large selection of Chinese reproductions of Japanese netsukes. The cheaper newer offerings online today are not the quality that I have and sell. Here is a foo dog on a ball. Chinese loved lions, but had none centuries ago, so they bred dogs to look like lions, hence the lion dog-foo dog. This charmer is 1 3/4" tall, a copy of a Japanese antique. Same look, much less in cost. Inset eyes, signed on bottom.
