Early 18th century Chinese blanc de chine model of a seated Dog of Fu (Fo) made during the reign of the Emperor Kangxi. Made at the kilns at Dehua which was the centre for blanc de chine.

it was modelled as a joss stick holder with the joss sticks being put in the small tube behind the dog.

The Fo or Fu dogs are based on the Temple dogs of Tibet and were seen seated outside Temples and Palaces and fascinated the Chinese. These were large stone models of seated hounds. They were also modelled on the Tibetan terrier which would sit out side the Temple waiting for their master / monk to come out.

This Dog sits on a shaped stand with its front paw on a brocade ball.
