New to netsuke: inherited a few pieces #1

Postby rudy » Fri Mar 02, 2018 5:08 am

Hello all. I am excited to have found this website and this community. I inherited a bunch of netsuke from an aunt (who was into horses), and for the longest time did not know what they were. I will post a few different objects: if anyone has information that would be greatly appreciated. Are these made of ivory? Are they legal to sell? I look forward to leaning. Thanks in advance

Dear Rudy,

Welcome to the netsuke and sagemono lounge :)

The item(s) you have posted are categorised as an NLO (Netsuke Like Object). These types of works are commonly reproduced in the far east, are non Japanese, and have unreadable signatures applied.

We would also like to take this opportunity to make you aware we don't offer valuations on the forum, and solicitation of items is prohibited. That being said we are comfortable to say that NLO's are worth little to nothing commercially, and the real value will only be apparent in some form of sentimental meaning this piece may hold for you.

To help you understand more about NLO's we would like to direct you to read this introduction on modern souvenir productions (NLO's) - viewtopic.php?f=12122&t=7940207

Your topic has been moved into the Modern Tourist Souvenir Netsuke & Netsuke-like Objects forum. As little more can be said on the NLO, this thread has been locked.

You are actively welcomed to create further topics, ask questions, or share more of your collection. If you are genuinely interested in learning more about netsuke and sagemono we would encourage you to make use of the search feature on the forum, and look through the many examples of authentic netsuke already posted.

We hope to see you develop a genuine interest in this addictive art form, and please know, a friendly community of helpful individuals awaits to answer any further questions you may have.

Thank you for your time. Bad news is still news, and now that I am learning :) about this art form, I may keep my eyes open more in the future when I run into them.
