Smithsonian Pair of Foo Dogs
$495.00
Smithsonian Exclusive Smithsonian Institution Exclusive

These fine porcelain Foo, or Fu, Dogs are Chinese lion guardians that are stationed at the entrance to or just inside of a building to ensure positive energy. Dating from the Han Dynasty (206 BCE–220 ACE), these auspicious animals are always displayed in pairs. The male represents the yin; the female the yang—ensuring a harmonious balance. Like this pair, Foo Dogs are often depicted with symbols under one of their paws—the male with a ball (symbolizing the world) and the female, with a cub (symbolizing her protection of every one inside). These beautiful Foo Dogs are finished in crackle glaze of light blue/gray. Fine porcelain.

Murano Glass Aquarium
$199.95
SPECIAL VALUE AT $199.95
(Originally $220.00)


Experience the tranquil pleasure of a tropical fish aquarium without the need for feeding and maintenance. Beautifully expressing the strong tie between the tiny islands of Venice and the briny lagoon in which they reside, this Murano Glass Aquarium is handmade by Murano glass blowers. Colorful fish, underwater reeds, and decorations are created from glass rods, called murrina, then skillfully embedded (while nearly molten) within the glass “tank” of this enchanting Murano Glass Aquarium. The result is a masterful illusion of movement made more vibrant and magical in natural light. Each will vary, making it truly one-of-a-kind.
