Re: Favorite Finds of 2017

Again, thank you, Martyn. For interest and comparison, posting the signed okimono you mentioned, housed in Spurlock Museum, Univ. of Illinois, depicting a Komuso playing a shakuhachi (was not familiar with the latter term, but it is described by Lazarnick as a clarinet type bamboo musical instrumen...

Re: Favorite Finds of 2017

A pleasure Milton. I remember once translating this very same name for a collector friend, the example in ivory. I'll email, and see if he can send me some shots of his example. I was hoping for an image of the signature, but the collector looks to be away. So instead, here are some stock images of ...

Re: Favorite Finds of 2017

Piers, the early bird, beat me to it!!! A warming translation. Thank you Piers. You've translated the carver kanji spot on. Milton. Here is some info on your carver. 0983147175.jpg And an example, I think we can safely say is from the same hand. 1770-01146350.jpg 1770-02115999.jpg Another example of...

Re: Favorite Finds of 2017

Hi Milton, I remember the ryusa well. Reminds me of a pterodactyl. Nice find in Behrens. Your sennin reminds me of the ryujin type models. Perhaps loosely based around a Soken Kisho diagram? I wonder if the scroll might give us some clues. Could you blow it up enough for us to try and translate the ...

Yeah you are right. Not much hope for me is there. Whilst some look for a new year restorer, I should perhaps find a therapist :D

I'm outnumbered on going for a restoration. Perhaps at this seasonal point, it's simply a case of wishing you a merry Xmas and a happy new ear :roll:

Re: Toad on Lotus Seed Pot

Do I want to start collecting netsuke's? Yes, but very slowly. I only want to collect objects (in general) that really appeal to me. I am not interested in commercial value. Furthermore I would like to add some serious study to it. Two weeks ago I did an initial internet-course (Leiden University) ...

Re: Copy?

However, I know a few of the members here did get to handle. I could be mistaken, but I think there where a few questions regarding this piece. Giles - regarding my comment above. I was mistaken. It was in relation to some other pieces. I too agree with Klaus. A little bit of damage somewhere is re...

Re: Favorite Finds of 2017

Can I just mention a bit of a pet hate of mine. I apologise for me being pedantic. Any work, pre Meiji should in my mind be called “Edo School” this was its name thus a Netsuke derived from there should be given this title. A work from this area which is Meiji onwards should quite rightly be called...
