Did you bid on it Neil?
On several occasions over the years I've lost out on a bid only to see it on your website!
I found that both comforting (confirmation that I was bidding on a good one) and disconcerting (I should've bid higher as it was obviously "worth" more).
I appreciate the note.

I honestly did not see it...

Lisa and I are right in the middle of organising our May Catalogue/Exhibition so I've taken my eye off the ball. If I'd had the opportunity I would have been trying :)

Its an honest example of a Kyoto beckoning dog. These are thought to be the precursor to the ivory and wood model. I like them very much, and are a true collectors netsuke in my view. Congratulations you got me this time :lol:

Nice to have a collar and ornament too. Agreed. We like this one.

This one is a pure "ball netsuke" signed Kikugawa, 44 puppys and each one look with different expression...(?)

The Forum has been eerily quiet of late. Just to make sure it's not just an electronic glitch, I'll reopen the celebration of the Year of the Dog with a humble example. There are some great ones up above, and perhaps more will follow. Where is everybody???

Sweet dog, Alison, with ribbon and posed demurely! 8-)

Alison,
Your puppy I believe is a ceramic netsuke? I have looked for one with the hair detail - it is very different from other ceramic examples. I have not been lucky finding one yet.
Luigi, I have always loved Kangyoku's animal carvings with their large clumsy paws! The HB just adds to their unique charm. I love that Kangyoku Junishi set, and we are fortunate that you are willing to share it here.
I am sorry I have been so absent. I ended last year with a bronchitis that went to my lungs and pretty much ruined my Christmas holiday with my children. It took a long time to feel better, and then it came back--Three rounds of antibiotics and two rounds of prednisone later, I think I am finally almost over it!
Nothing new to share, as I have had a quiet collecting year. But this very small roly poly piebald puppy is worth repeating! He is really tiny. Originally thought to be a child's netsuke it measures 3cm x 2.2 x 2.3. Unsigned, I am wondering if it could be attributed to a school at least. Would love to have your thoughts. Originally I thought Kyoto, but I now think that is not correct.
