Each one of this pair of original carved ivory Fu lions, kirin, or Fu dogs measures about 3 1/2 by 2/3/4 by 1 1/4 inches, not including the wooden stands they sit on.
The pair of ivory carvings date from the early to middle 20th century in China.
They are in good condition, except for a few old repairs and the loss of the tip of one ear. They are a well patinated honey color with variations in tone throughout.
They are guaranteed to be genuine ivory carvings and are NOT imitations of any kind. They have areas that include the traditional crosshatched lines that should be found on any genuine ivory carvings.
They also have small cabachon blue gemstones (possibly turquoise) inset for eyes.
