A fine and rare pair of Kangxi style Chinese turquoise glazed foo dogs on ormolu metal mounts. Both dogs are covered in a rich lustrous turquoise (peacock blue) glaze darkening which pools in the recesses. Both dogs date from the late 18th or early 19th century and the mounts are late 19th century. Both are in excellent condition with one very minor restoration to the tip of the quiff which is not visible but mentioned for the sake of accuracy. As there is a very slight difference between these two they may be a matched pair but we think that is probably unlikely.
