      Well its a lovely celadon blue glaze--I think then it is Chinese. POWERFUL! So cool.

      A beautiful Japanese Kutani celadon shishi foo lion dog, if my research serves me correctly.
      Those are the markings:
      43-3293 is the model/design number.
      RN-48864 is the registration number.
      "Made In Japan" indicates that this was made around mid-century or a bit earlier.

      Nothing found on the web in regard to the registration number, nor did I find an image of your foo lion dog.
