I am very thankful for your time and expert inputs, as always!!!
Now I know they are Qilin, and I am happy to know that they are known for being benevolent :) So sorry that I have not had time to clean them up before presenting them to our forum.
As you suggested, I test and they are non-magnetic, definitely not painted, and the underneath scratched areas look orange-gold - bronze.
I am very intrigued as for the meaning of the large writings and as for the process on how object like this was made then and now!
Again, many thanks Suzume !!!
