It has gone from $1.00 to $222.50us and still has almost 3 hours to run. I am going to show a better picture of the signature. I'm a very happy bunny. :o :o :o :o


I guess, our definition of good vs. bad is just somewhat different. ;) Many ivory souvenirs resembling Japanese netsuke do sell in this range. Not what the authentic Japanese netsuke are sold for these days... Not even close. 8-)

Thank you everyone, would you look at another I'm thinking of listing. I don't want to deceive any bidders so would be extremely grateful for your thoughts on the following netsuke. I've owned this one for over 30years.

Good question Dave. I'm not offering any further opinions on these NLOs other than to say the seller should quit peddling this stuff he likely got burned on 30 years ago.
