This wonderful pair of antique, 17th century, Chinese architectural brackets were expertly hand carved. They depict a whimsical interpretation of a pair of foo lions (dogs) and retain the faded remains of the original blue and red painted finish. Notice the nicely executed and artistically rendered details throughout. They will make a great addition to a patio area or inside the home. Offering many decorating possibilities, they are superb sculptures on their own.
