Welcome Announcement:

We would like to take this opportunity to extend you the warmest of welcomes on the launch of the new netsuke and sagemono lounge, 17th April 2016.

This is a public site, and the netsuke and sagemono lounge is open to all, expressly welcoming without prejudice; dealers, one off sellers, collectors and artists. The netsuke and sagemono lounge has been developed to provide a solid foundation as part of a wider, evolving, educational solution for the netsuke and sagemono world.

We believe that education in this area of art should be made freely available for all, whatever nationality, religion or background. This is a community in which we commonly celebrate one interest; a love and passion for this art form and its culture. We ask that you keep this philosophy in mind when considering the content of your posts. Offering free public eduction still requires funding from somewhere, and so as a thank you, we have created a private area with a growing number of additional benefits, for those members that kindly donate by subscribing to an INS membership. If you are already an INS member you will see this private area appear, after logging in. If you are an INS member and have supplied a different email address to the INS that you have used to create your account, please contact us with your username and we will add you to the INS group.

If you are visiting us for the first time, and would like to start posting messages, please visit the tutorial here: Click here to read registration instructions

We have created a specific support forum for this new launch and would ask you post questions, issues or even just a quick hello under the following link once you are logged in: Click here to post any support questions

If you find yourself unable to post under the latter forum, or have a connection issue to the netsuke and sagemono lounge, please contact the Moderator Team directly on

Some other recommended links to start;

It took a team for this to happen, and firstly I would like to thank the community of the old forum that engaged in the discussion that instigated the path to the new solution. Secondly I would like to thank David White and Aisha Buntin for facilitating the release of controls to allow this job to get done. Running up to the launch this past week we had a User acceptance Testing process in place. For their invaluable time and feed back I would like to say a big thank you to Steve Koppich and Peter Salamon for their parts in that process. A solution like this requires infrastructure and without the support of Charlie Markwick, director of Southcot Services Ltd, this project would have never lifted off the ground. Finally, but by no means least, I would like to thank Alan Fisher, Jan Van de Perre and Judy Barnewolt Jones of the new Moderator Team for the time and solid work they have put in over the past month and half.

Had enough of the welcome message, then what are you waiting for? Please go and enjoy the new site and don't forget to say a quick hello once you have an account.
