Re: Merfolk & Shuryo

Beautiful pieces all around, and enlightening discussion on attributions. Thank you for sharing.

Might the Tekkai Sennin be Gomo Sennin? (If that is a feather fan in his hand).

Re: Stag antler piece of unknown age : modern Ebay fake ?

Yes, the first clue! Why would they say that and ask over $1,000?
They would both be ok if they described them as modern, but then, I suppose, there would be little chance of selling for much money.
I might be inclined to bid if they were labelled properly just to help out modern artists.

Re: Stag antler piece of unknown age : modern Ebay fake ?

Here are two more currently on ebay. One from Switzerland (uh,oh), one from Tokyo. I think both are nice enough pieces but are they "fakes" based on age and origin descriptions and their claim of authenticity.? https://www.ebay.com/itm/Antique-Japanese-Netsuke-Baku/142718600070?hash=item21...

Re: Is this actually a signature??

My reaction is that you have a very, very, nice, old, unsigned netsuke.

I believe you meant to say: "Happily, we're all getting old..."

It appears to me as if he is contemplating whether to open the box or not.
