This is a fine old Chinese bronze Seal - personal chop. It is a roughly cast figure of a Lion Dog (Fo). It measures 1 3/4" tall x 1" wide x 1" deep. There are remnants of the sealing wax in the characters on the base that make up the signature. We have not had the signature translated. However,there is a later impressed mark that reads "CHINA" so it must date from sometime after 1920.
