A rare green glazed, delicate and beautiful Dog of Fo porcelain incense burner from the Qing dynasty, late 19th century. The Dog of Fo is a Buddhist guardian dog, always seen playing with a brocaded ball. The Dog of Fo is sitting on top of a huge brocaded ball. Standing on the left and right corner of the pedestal are two pairs of baby Dog of Fo, with tiny spikes on their backs, and seen trying to climb up the brocaded ball.

The cover of the incense burner is delicately potted. In most instances, such incense burner would come without the cover because the cover is mostly broken.

There are minor firing faults, with one seen on the tail of the brown baby Fo. No chips or cracks. One of the green support from the Dog of Fo is broken and re-attached. The tail of the green baby Fo is also broken and re-attached. All these faults are not visible unless upon close inspection.

The measurement of the incense burner is: Height 16.6cm, the Length is 11.5cm and the Width is 7.0cm.
