Re: Ceramic netsuke

Thanks, Judy and Piers. I wish you some time in Toledo. Sorry about the sideways photos--they are all right side up in my image bank, and I'm never sure why some will turn up with the wrong orientation in a post. I'll add one more relevant example from Toledo; this one, though similar to the previou...

Re: Junishi

Glad you're better, Judy. I love your little pup. Mine is indeed porcelain. I'll post some more photos in the ceramic netsuke section, with a few comparisons, once I get time; and will keep an eye out for one with similar hairwork for you. I've seen them occasionally.

Re: Junishi

The Forum has been eerily quiet of late. Just to make sure it's not just an electronic glitch, I'll reopen the celebration of the Year of the Dog with a humble example. There are some great ones up above, and perhaps more will follow. Where is everybody???

Re: Interesting article on ivory and dating ivory...

A whole series of articles by experts on ivory--analysis, conservation, historical and cultural importance around the world, contemporary legal and moral issues--has recently appeared in the January issue of Curator: The Museum Journal.
