Pair Of Stone Chinese Guardian Foo / Fu Dogs

UK HERITAGE
Chinese Pair of Stone Guardian Foo Dogs/Guardian Lions. Referred to as “Foo Dogs” or “Fu Dogs” in western culture, these handsome stone gatekeepers are seen throughout Asia. Traditional symbols of protection, they are made from durable materials like bronze or stone and are presented in pairs to flank either side of a doorway. While their decoration style varies by culture and religion, handsomely carved and highly detailed pairs were universally indicative of power; initially reserved for temples, royal palaces and the wealthiest of families. Weathered finish. Generally excellent condition with crisp details. One of the dogs has previously had its upper jaw reattached. Circa 1920

A little piece of our history:

History, telling the stories of the past and letting them live again in the future, is core to everything we do at UK Heritage. So let us also share with you a little piece of own history.

We've been buying and selling architectural heritage pieces since the grand old year of... 2006.  yes we may seem relatively young in the world of antiques, but thanks to our dedicated and experienced team our knowledge knows no bounds.

Our business was founded by Ben Couchman, a man dedicated to learning about the history of every piece he comes across. He knows a thing or two about architectural antiques, and can often be found scouring the UK and Europe to uncover decorative or functional architectural treasures that deserve their chance to shine again.

Our home in Herfordshire:

Our impressive rural site in Herefordshire is currently home to over 2000 antiques. Arranged around a courtyard, it includes an 18th Century barn as well as three large, modern warehouses. It only takes a quick walk around some of our dedicated showrooms to almost feel each piece jumping out at you, begging to share their stories and add to yours.

Our philosophy:

Sustainability and ethical responsibility are the buzzwords of today and while it's easy to say this is a priority, it is often a little more difficult to prove. However, our business model relies on both.

We don't buy or create new. We reuse, recycle and give architectural antiques that were once destined for landfill an opportunity to continue creating history. Everything is antique and unique. We also do not sell items that contain ivory or that are dangerous to health or the environment.

Who we work with:

In our time we've supplied a little piece of history to interior designers, architects, retailers and private clients across the world. Our list of previous customers is quite impressive too, having worked with Cambridge and Oxford Universities, Claridge's and Warner Brothers, to name just a few.
