One Chinese gilt bronze recumbent lion or foo dog. With well tooled and molded form and stylization, which makes this example rarer than most. The teeth are bared, fangs exposed, and the lion is in reluctant submission. A fine example of an early paper or scroll weight of an early period. A label from Asiantiques, Winter Park, Florida, is affixed along the interior.

Provenance: Asiantiques, Winter Park, Florida; Collection of Bruce Dayton & Ruth Stricker Dayton, Minnesota.

Height: 1 3/4 in x width: 3 in x depth: 2 in. Please contact us for a detailed condition report. Please note that the lack of a condition statement does not imply perfect condition. Email condition@revereauctions.com with any condition questions.
