new to netsuke: inherited #2

Postby rudy » Fri Mar 02, 2018 5:11 am

I inherited about 8 different figures. All look to be ivory, except this one: is it wood? I have not seen any other dark ones.

Thanks in advance for all feedback.

Dear Rudy,

this seems to be a "museum replica" : next to the (famous) Tomotada signature, we see the abbreviation MMA.
Some of these have been for sale in museum shops for a small amount.
Unfortunately, now and then they turn up on online auction sites like Ebay and are listed as real netsuke.
