A Pair of Very Rare/Fine Korean Polychrome Enameled Wood Carved Tigers: 19th C.: Korea, Joseon dynasty, 19th century. A pair of lacquered wood tigers. Both are modeled in poses to suggesting hunting or stalking, with mouths open as if ready to bite - or possibly they have caught their prey and are ready to roar with triumph! The lacquer is yellow, black, and red. Both tigers stand on a wooden base and they likely served as guardians at an entryway. They’re in very good condition, it measures 15.75" L x 10.15" H (40 cm x 25.8 cm) each.
