Click the photo above for a larger version and more pictures

Detail:  A male and female pair of foo dogs / lions made of black jade-like (serpentine or omphacite) and white jade-like (nanyang or saussurite).  Acquired from a group of craftsman a block away from Tiananmen Square in Beijing. These are hand carved and would make stunning bookends!

Very sorry but this gorgeous pair of bookends has sold.
