Re: Bonhams "Fine Japanese Art" - 9th November 2017

e might feel hard done by, but don't forget Van-Ham has an absolutely explosive action packed December Always another sale on the horizon to save for lol. Looking forward to handling the Van-Ham offering. The Misumi catalogue is an absolute stunner. Some of the Inro are out of this world, cant wait...

Lots of 17th Century Inro v Lack of 17th Century Netsuke?

I see lots of examples of very early Inro but very few Netsuke that are described as 17th Century. I actually can't recall seeing one? I have often read that very early Netsuke were found objects or Manju but I haven't come across any of the latter dated as 17th Century. Does anyone have any example...

Re: Porcelain/Ceramic Netsuke

Thanks Martyn, Max kindly sent me the info of the lots I got in that auction.

Still think about the Ashinaga-tenaga that got away that day, should have gone a couple more bids on it!
