We lead with this imposing pair of large Chinese bronze foo dogs - traditionally these would stand sentry in front of palaces and temples to ward off evil spirits. The female represents yin and symbolically protects the people dwelling in the home, while the male represents yang, protecting the structure itself. Of course being bronze these can live outside with no fear of rusting.
Some cracking other Latest Acquistions below, including an English carved coat of arms and a set of Chippendale dining chairs, to name a few.
Enjoy the rest of the weekend and stay safe :)
