Re: pipe case addition

Thank you gentlemen. I think the modern framed backpack is quite an improvement on this. If I come back in my next life as a porter I'll try to spend lots of time at roadside with my kiseru, tonkotsu and ashtray netsuke. :lol:

Re: Children playing

Its a cute piece from second half 19th century I would say. We only see 3 of the 4 karako with 2 types of drums 0and the shishigashira (head). Please post a couple more views. I've seen similar by one of the later Tomochikas.

Re: New Member - Thank You Martyn Jones!

Welcome, Curt. I admit I'm one of those people who does not care for the Anrakusai stain on some pieces and sometimes for me border on looking like an NLO.

Re: Ashtray netsuke

What a perfect set for to to display at these events Piers! You need to work out a deal with Reinhard. Your samurai buddies will want to tamp out their burning matchlock cords on your netsuke though. Thanks for showing it, Reinhard, and Piers for the video.
