Chinese Foo Dog Soapstone Chops or Seals, a Pair
Pair of Chinese soapstone chops or seals topped by foo dogs, the front with Chinese script characters and the bottom having the incised seals. They would make great bookends since they are quite heavy.
In China, company chops – sometimes referred to as a seal or stamp – are mandatory for doing business and replace signatures that are used in Western countries. A company seal is the tangible representative and legal evidence of the company’s activities abroad.
