Fuchi with Chinese-style Lions and Peonies


Description Provenance Inscription Credit
Description On the front of the fuchi, a Chinese-style lion ("shi-shi") peaks out from a rock. Lions in this style were derived from paintings of lions, not direct observation, so they resemble dogs more than actual lions. On the reverse is a large peony flower. This is part of a mounted set.
Provenance Henry Walters, Baltimore [date and mode of acquistion unknown]; Walters Art Museum, 1931, by bequest.
