Pair of Chinese Sancai Glazed Porcelain Playing Fu Lions

Kangxi period, AD 1662-1722


Forming a true pair and one of the rarest and amusing models of this subject. Each is posed oh his back and playing with a brocaded ball with all four feet.  An opening at the top of each ball is meant for a tapir or incense.  Their faces are turned towards viewer for added spriited
engagement.  All finely modelled,with movable eyes, and the glaze colors of bright and deep tone.
Height: 4 3/4 inches (12 cm.)
Another pair formerly with our gallery emanated from the colleciton of Heber Bishop and are now in a private collection.
