If unsold on this listing, I will be keeping them. Antique Chinese Foo Fu Dog Ceramic Candlesticks Turquoise Glaze Pair Dogs - Seal. On offer a pair of antique Chinese Foo Fu Dogs Dog Candlesticks (or incense holders) in turquoise glaze.These have a seal mark to base. They are 8 tall and weigh 1/2 kg each approx. They have a green/turquoise and lots of detail. There is a 5mm sliver of glaze loss to edge of one candle holder. There is crazing to the glaze and some worn bubbles to surface. These are unusual in having the candlestick part, and the only other one I found was part of a French Louis 18th Century brass Ormolu elaborate antique candlestick holder. (The candlestick part having a gilded brass fitting and it sat in a brass frame). As I can find no others, I assume that it has origins of this nature? Only the experts will know.

Faults: as described, a small 5mm length glaze loss to top of one candlestick holder and some surface bubbles and crazing.
