Hello!
I’m very glad that you chose Mearto for your online appraisal.
Considering the photos, this item is:

A pair of Chinese guardian lions from 20th century, commonly called stone lions in China and sometimes called a foo dog in the West, are symbolic sculptures of the Asiatic lion. They are always depicted in pairs. Foo dogs are symbolic, protective statues, and they are designed in pairs — one is female, the other is male. The female represents yin, and symbolically protects the people dwelling inside the home, while the male statue, representing yang, protects the structure itself.

This piece is in good condition and there is no serious damage visible in the images provided. Beautiful piece overall.

A fair market estimation, would be between 150 to 650 USD. This estimate is based on actual recent past recorded auction sales of comparable items. Retail "asking prices" can be higher and may vary.
