Late 19th century small Chinese bronze seal with sitting Buddhist lion on top, looking to his right. Pleasantly heavy piece with very good casting and chiseling, great facial expression, beautiful patina on the surface. Four crisply carved characters within a border on the base, old seal paste accumulation in the grooves. The imprint of the seal is shown in red. Very nice piece for scholar’s table. Height 1 1/16 inches, base 9/16 inches square.
