Lou,

Thank you for your input and example. My mind is opening to a different possibility after a long conversation on the phone with my friend Judy yesterday. You are giving it another nudge. I am happy to see you back on! You are a valuable contributor on the forum to me. Lovely tea set!

Indeed, Lou, you do learn something new every day on this INS Forum!

Very good find Louis! The tongue looks missing in action, it happens to so many of these with the moveable tongue, one fall forward and it's gone. Actually, I have been looking for one like this. Congratulations!

Thanks.
Not sure there was a moveable tongue on this particular netsuke design. The head is already movable. Moreover there is glazing on the lips of the karako.

Very good point indeed. I could no find any with both movable neck and tongue. Yours on post 78 shows that it is possible. I guess I'll have to find a tongue for mine now, hard task though !

Louis, I am sorry I removed my post. I didn't want the dealers piece out on the forum.

Yes, most of them with an open mouth with the exception on my tekkai sennin have a moveable tongue like the one shown in post #78.

Add: If you look on various auctions for netsuke with moveable tongue, many of them have broken feet and such. I wouldn't feel bad about robbing one of it's tongue to make the lovely karako whole if the price is right!

Except shishi's. They usually have the movable ball in the mouth. Actually there isn't a steadfast rule, just generals.

A brush rest very similar to your karako netsuke, only no himotoshi. This has a moveable head and no moveable tongue.

Hi Jill.. Nice addition to your collection. I really like the colors as well. I dont remember seeing the brush rest that you posted in December and I have to say I really like that one too! I love that his mouth is agape. And it seems to have been carefully cleaned before firing. it looks to be a very fine piece of porcelain. Congrats on both pieces!
Judy
