I am writing this evening in reference to how to tell one from another (ie: Wood from Celluloid, Ivory, or Other Bone). I ask as in relation to the attached scan(#2). The owner states that it is celluloid but when I queried the Forum I found a post by the following member.
Sat Mar 13, 2010 6:22 pm In his post he further provides an example(#1). I dont see the lines in my example.OldKappa wrote:Yes but if you see these lines mainly in kagamibuta, it is a wooden core with a celluloid covering imitating ivory. They are genuine Meiji kagamibuta mass produced netsuke.
Thoughts and thanks in advance
