Chinese bronze censer in the form of a foo dog, or guardian lion. It stands with its tail sticking straight into the air, its head is hinged in front so that incense may be placed into his body and the smoke will billow out from its open mouth. It has a lovely bright green patina and a nicely detailed form. dates (1925-1989), provenance from the estate of Edward Gerber Size: 6.5" height, 7" length
