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