Subject:Another pair of foo dogs
Posted By: Tony Mon, Jun 07, 2021 IP: 23.243.126.110

Dear friends,
It is another pair of small foo dogs, made of stone.
I would really appreciate your inputs for what kind of stone and from which period they were made.
Many thanks,
Tony

These are chinese Foo dogs or guardian lions.
They are I believe modern interpretations.
Inconclusive to what the material is. Could be treated serpentine.

Dear Mark and Ernest,
I am very thankful for your time and kind help!
I really appreciate you both for the inputs on what they are and might be made of.
I just did the scratch test, and it was scratched as you both suspect, serpentine :)
Again, many thanks!
Tony

Do the scratch test which I think will show you that this is made from Serpentine.
