    Dear all

    Can anyone decipher the Chinese script on the base of this Foo Dog, along with the stamp on its left front paw?

    I have photographed the figure under different light.

    The statue measures 118mm and weighs 38.1 grams.

    I acquired this at a local flea market.

    Is this a rare piece and authentic from some distant Dynasty or is there a lorry with one thousand of these in the back traveling down the M1?

    Thank you.

    Yours sincerely

    Richard
