Re: Copy?

Many thanks for the comments - all very reassuring which is much appreciated as this is by far the most I’ve spent on a netsuke. Judy, I just used a lightly damp cloth to clean it and nothing else. I love this little piece and learning about the Kuzunoha story and I'll look into restoration in the n...

Re: Copy?

Re: Copy?

Many thanks Souldeep and Judy - I would very much like to hear the opinions of others who have handled the piece so hopefully they will come forward! I have the piece and to me it in general feels authentic, but questions lie with the ear and staining (the left ear actually feels different to the to...

Re: Copy?

Thanks for your comments - Judy, I think what you have seen as I've now seen now at close quarters is that the left ear is not in keeping with the rest of the peice and there are a couple of stain blobs both on the left side of the face and on the left side of the neck by the head of Abe no Seimei -...

Re: Children playing

Many thanks for your thoughts Alan - please see attached photos for different angles of the piece - I particularly like the inclusion of the uchiwa on the bottom. Do you have any pictures / photos of the netsuke you mention?
Best,
G.

karakos
A late addition to this thread but I have a nice netsuke of 4 karakos playing (pic below). It's unsigned so I know nothing of who may have carved it but I think it depicts the children playing music for a Shishimai dance - any and all thoughts most welcome.
Many thanks,
G.

Best,
G.
