Absolutely rare and amazing pottery shisa ( foo dog, foo lion ) from the mid. Meiji Period, signed by the artist and covered with wonderful white Hagi glaze.

Do you find more impressive ones on the antique art market?

The figure shows a lot of artistic details (take a look on the teeth and the tongue). Hagi Ware Foo dogs are very rare.

No repairs, only a tiny piece of the tail is chipped off and some peaks of the teeth are missing, hard to notice! and it does not diminish its beauty.

We offer the Shishi with an old wood box.

Size: 13,6 cm height x 14,2 cm width, weight almost 1kg.
