Vintage handmade hardwood foo dog incense burner.

Unusual item. Date and origin unknown. Dog shaped incense stick holder carved from a single piece of hardwood. Lovely patina, very tactile. The vessel has holes to hold eight incense sticks. On the base are two holes where the dog would’ve been mounted on a stand. Sadly the base is no longer present. In good vintage condition, a deep ridge on one side of the dog looks like damage, but still structurally sound and not very noticeable. Please see photos for more details.
