Sea Monster & Cat w Fish

Postby HLH » Sat Nov 25, 2017 7:40 pm

Dear friends,
I have a wood netsuke of a cat biting a big fish. Its patina is good and the carving is quite detailed. Could it be treated to look old? The monster in bone looks also quite detailed but himotoshi is very small and narrow. Old/new? Please advise.

Both are modern tourist/NLO pieces.
