Just inherited these guardian dogs. I have looked at Foo and Shi Shi guardian dogs but they do not match what I have (the tails seem unique). These dogs are bronze. The larger dog is 12" long and they are very heavy. I know they date back to 1850's as that was when my Great Grandfather went to Japan and started The American Trading Company.
Wondering if anyone might know more about these precious dogs. Can anyone interpret the markings?
