1964 New York World's Fair
Foo Dog Corner Roof Tile from the China Pavilion. Each corner of the roof had a line of these tiles. When the pavilion was being built, this figural tile arrived with a hole in it. My father asked for it (he did the plumbing in the China pavilion) and it sat in his office until he gave it to me when he retired in 1995. The last picture (photo taken from from a video on a TV screen, so not the best quality) shows the actual corner of the pavilion and how the tile was supposed to be installed. This could be the only one of these original tiles to survive. Size: 13" long by 6 5/8" deep by 14 1/2" tall. Condition: Extremely Fine. There are a few chips on the base (one is 3/4" by 1 1/2") and the 1" hole on the back.

Winning Bid: $ 100

Estimate: $ 300 - $ 500
