Man with stick and a bird

Postby HLH » Sun Sep 03, 2017 7:54 pm

Dear netsuke friends,
This netsuke is made in persimmon or simular wood. Its carved rather coarsly and looks old?
Very new to the complex art of dating and identifying.
Best
Henrik

Anyone who knows anything about this item. Who is it? Age?

Henrick, this is a little statue of an ancient sage, carved quite crudely and fairly recently IMHO, and designed to stand alone, as an okimono of sorts, (ie not a Netsuke). If there are himotoshi holes, please forgive my eyesight, but even so the flat base does not change the situation. :)

If the hole the cord passes through is supposed to be the himotoshi it totally fails as a netsuke. It looks quite modern to me.
Please spend some time browsing the NLO area to see what not to buy and why and then move on to the forums here with some wonderful antique netsuke. :)

Thanks Piers and Alan,
Your comments are valued and very important, not only to me but to many more persons trying to learn as much as one can do on netsuke. There are himotoshi on the figure but the photos are not good enough to spot them easily.
