Antique Japanese Carved Rosewood Okimono Figure of Shishi, (Foo Dog) Meiji Period
The attention to detail is amazing, from the intricate flared tail to the legs/paws to the glass eyes.
This is carved from a single piece of dense rosewood. The rosewood display stand is later - it matches the piece very nicely.
No markings found.
Condition is very good with typical very minor signs of wood checking.
