Inherited Netsuke no. 2

Postby PhillipRVA » Tue Dec 26, 2017 3:32 pm

Dear All,

I am new to this forum!
I have inherited some netsuke, coming from a noble collection and I would like you to take a look at them!
I have no idea what these are worth or if they are souvernirs or not, so I will post them one by one so you can discuss.
Always I have admired these a lot, and if they are 'real' I think I am going to start collecting more.


Kindest,

Phillip

Hi Phillip !

welcome to the Lounge and hope you are enjoying a nice Christmas period !

The inherited pieces that you have posted so far look quite promising !

We hope you will have a fine learning experience here.
This Forum is all about sharing knowledge and appreciation of netsuke and sagemono.

We wonder if the wood figure of Lucky God Hotei has the same provenance as the other pieces ... it does not look that old.
We are afraid this may be more of a "modern tourist piece".

Please do not hesitate to ask any questions that you might have about this fascinating field.
However, it is the Forum's policy not to provide valuations on netsuke.

I shall not ask about value anymore!
I doubt that it is a souvernir, but nothing is impossible.. I cannot ask my grandparents anymore.
Is it after a famous Netsuke?
And how do you see that it is new, is it the material? So much to learn, but you guys are great help!

Hello, This piece very similar as I have bought for tourist suvenir 20 years ago in Bangkok. Price 5-20 usd in the "exellent "antic shop.
It is made for tourist from ironwood and the signature simple cracking or put a small round bone plug with red letters and the forma coming from old pieces.
Dont woory I have still this pieces for education the new collectors.
Peter
