Perfect for filling with dog treats for a very special dog, or with cookies for very special humans! Certainly, this piece pays homage to Japanese lidded ceramics with ornate finials (including, often, Foo Dogs), but here just a very sweet looking puppy functioning as a very handy handle. Both bowl and lid were hand-thrown, and glazed inside and out, and there appears to be a potter's mark near the base of the bowl. Plenty large for storing lots of treats, or great just on the shelf.
Overall dimensions: 8 1/8" t x 7" in diameter. Bowl along measures 6 3/8" across x 3 3/8" t. Very good condition, no chips, cracks, just some light crazing which I don't think detracts in the least.
