Re: Van Ham - The handling session

All three were out of my reach, for another reason, Judy ;) But, as Martyn put it not so long ago, the experience of handling all these beautiful pieces is invaluable... The hammer prices (to which one has to add 28%) were: - The horse: EUR 15,000 - The Kaygyokusai boar: EUR 14,000 - The Goho turtle...

Re: A real Shi Shi

I like this Shishi very much, Curt. Congratulations !

Re: The Grind

With the age, I am becoming slightly better with netsuke, and a lot worse in squash.

In fact these two Kishosai manjus are actually copies of the Hojitsu ones, with very few changes. I would not call them only 'close to' ;). I do li...

Re: Manju - karako with drum

Some interesting developments about this couple of manjus, both of them are in my collection by now. Firstly, just as a reminder, here are the photos (the back of the two manjus, with the signature and the trumpet, are almost identical): Manju - front.jpg Manju - back.jpg Front.jpg Both manjus are s...
