Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
They were modelled as a joss stick holders with the joss sticks being put in the small 'tube' behind the dog.
The Fo or Fu dogs are based on the Temple dogs of Tibet and fascinated the Chinese. These were large stone models of seated hounds seen outside Temples and palaces. They were also modelled on the Tibetan terrier which would sit out side the Temple waiting for their master / monk to come out.
These Dogs are seated on shaped stands with its front paw on a pillar.
Excellent colour and modelling
