Re: Thank you for your trust and patience :-)

Actually this has come as a total surprise to me, mixed with not a small amount of concern. Are you really all right, and next to that, will we really be all right? I cannot imagine life here without you, Martyn, but you have helped launch, float and steady this aircraft carrier, so I guess we must...

Thank you for your trust and patience :-)

Dear Community, Due to workload, family life and a desire to find more time to study netsuke, I have decided to step down from the moderator role.

Re: New Member - Thank You Martyn Jones!

Welcome to the Lounge Curt :) I'm certainly not worthy of the praise :lol: Actually members do interchange between the FB group and the Lounge. It's really just a social choice of how one decides to post that day. No one is infallible, but we have a great little community of experts that can help yo...

Re: Ikkosai monkey group question

Re: Ikkosai monkey group question

I also want to know if by the same hand why do the signatures look so different It's a good question Jill. I suspect I will get flamed for the following comment; we should apply artistic license to signatures. ⋅ Some netsuke were undoubtedly produced in a workshop scenario. Signatures may...
