Foo Dog Soapstone Bookends


  • Details
    This listing is for a pair of soapstone foo dog bookends. Each bookend measures 5" high. These hand-carved, gray and white Chinese guard dogs are standing on rectangular plinths. The guardian lions are carved in the traditional shíshi style with thick muscular doglike bodies and fierce dragon heads. There are no makers marks on the bookends. They are in good vintage condition with no major breaks or cracks and only minimal scratches on the soapstone surface which is to be expected due to the stone's natural softness. Everybody needs a pair of Chinese guardian lions to protect their home or workplace from negative energy. It is said these guardian lions will stop anyone with malicious intensions from entering your home. The fact that they'll look beautiful while they do it is an added bonus.
