Vintage PR Carved Chinese CHERRY AMBER FOO DOGS 7.5 Insect Inclusion Genuine. An older vintage, possibly antique, pair of genuine cherry amber hand carved Chinese foo dogs.
One has a playful pup below the front paw and the other a round ball. One (the one with pup) has a very visible insect in the base amber and possibly a much smaller insect slightly above that, also many minute air or water bubbles are present. To a muddy green color under a UV light.
Coloring is a bright rich cherry red, with the sun coming through they are super intense in color. They are a pair from the same very old estate. Both have significant surface scratching on bottoms.
1 has a shallow chip on bottom at edge, it very minimal at the side and is insignificant once seated. Also some nicks along bottom edge, very minor. May be a small "bruise" at back upper corner of 1 base, coloring is yellow at that spot, may just be the amber coloring. There is some white inside of carving lines, don't know why that is, can be seen best in the pics of them lying down-out of bright light. In general there are age appropriate rubs and some scratches here and there, nothing dramatic.
I have not cleaned these in the least other than wipe them with a soft microfiber cloth so I leave any desired cleaning to the new owner. Since these are handcarved they have very slighly different dimensions. X 2-3/4 to 7/8 w.I send out an invoice within 24 hrs.
