uongiorno a tutti,
Come si riconosce una netzuke in tagua e una in avorio?

Ivory. Surely you know how to recognize ivory!

Tagua. Size limit. Shape. Colour. Tagua shrinks over time and turns off-cream shadowy colour like your Netsuke, (unless lacquered all over).

Grazie a tutti,
il metodo per l'avorio é il famoso spillo caldo ,se é plastica lo scioglie se é avorio non si buca
saluti
