This is a circa 1900 Tibetan Kylin bronze temple lion. There were usually two

at the entrance to a temple and were used for incense sticks and offerings.

The Tibet Kylin are more ornate (the neck armor, etc) than from other regions of China. This one is valued at $2,000 retail. I've seen them go for $1700 to $2000.

Please do click the stars now for this one (bonuses are also welcome!), it is very important for me
to get good feedback for answering.
