Quantity available: 1
The Takito Company operated from 1880-1948. this is one of their pieces typical of the early 1920's through the early 1930's. It is a three-legged incense pot with lid and handles which are shaped into a foo dog, a traditional Chinese design. He is a mythological creation, part dog and part lion. The incense coil would be burned inside the pot, and the smoke allowed to come out through the holes in the lid. The design is traditional, and well done. The piece does show some wear on the gold foo dogs. The Takito mark in stamped in black on the bottom of the pot.
