A large set of porcelain shrine guardians in the form of Inari on pedestals decorated with over-glaze enamels and gold. Inari, the magical fox holds one paw over a burning jewel, and each clutches a precious object in its mouth. They are roughly 3-1/4 x 6 x 12 inches (30 x 16 x 8.5 cm). There is a repair to the ears on one, from which extends a hairline crack. This does not affect the integrity of the piece.
