Lion and Tiger figurines, matching pair, vintage Japan.
This is a great pair of retro, matching cat figurines.
They are the shiny, black glazed pottery and accented with gold stripes, yellow eyes and red tongues.
They are both in a walking or prowling position.
The bottoms are marked JAPAN H551-4/1.
They measure about 7" long.
They are in good condition except for one ear on the tiger is chipped.
It is not to noticeable, and does not take away from the beauty of the piece. And there is a hairline on the bottom of the base of the male lion that goes up on the front leg. It does not stand out, and does not take away from the piece.
This would be a nice addition to a collection or good for anyone to have and display.
