$975 

19th century ivory netsuke of a seated skeleton cleaning a mokugyo (Buddhist gong) with a stiff brush. I believe it represents the late Buddhist priest Danka: excellent Buddhist subject, great facial expression (if you can call it a face) with a wide smile, the piece being comical and somehow sad. Himotoshi (cord opening) is formed by a natural opening between the rib cage and hip bones. Beautiful patina turning honey color on the back where the netsuke was touching the silk of kimono, in excell ...click for details

This fine netsuke is probably my favorite in my little group. Once again, while it has great provenance, the carving is just superb, the movement of the snake as it glides in and out of the gourd is fantastic. About 39mm by 37mm by 21mm, light wear and patina. Mei ukibori Tadakuni, published Meinertzhagen page 838, lot 41 Sotheby's 01/22/77, ex. Winkworth. Circa 1830-40. Also see Lazarnick p 1059. I do have more images, please email me if you want to see more or have any questions.

This one is a bit of a mystery. The mei reads Jugyoku, and it appears to be one of the later mei, but I can't find out much about the carver. There were two carvers who signed Jugyoku who are well known, and at least one and possibly three more who signed the same way all working from the mid to the late 19th century. Anyway, this is kind of a sweet carving ( perhaps a sweet oni is an oxymoron ). About 39mm by 34mm by 26mm, light wear and light patina. Also has an old collection numbe ...click for details

Very nice large netsuke that may be school of Kanman ( Iwami ), see Lazarnick p582 k144 for similar work. Unsigned, about 47mm by 31mm by 29mm. Made of sea pine with a pink coral bead as the jewel and mother of pearl inlaid into the dragon's eyes. Light wear nice patina. Much nicer than my awful pictures show...

Sold thank you! 

This is the last netsuke that I purchased, it is wonderful, and I had always wanted an octopus. About 55mm by 45mm by 25mm. Wood with double inlaid eyes. Light wear and patina. This one is a more realistic version of the octopus which I happen to like.

Sold thank you 

This is a very special netsuke, not only because of the impeccable provenance, also because of the wonderful expressive carving. About 42mm by 26mm by 25mm, wood with double inlaid eyes and inlaid teeth. Mei is Soushin, and it is published in Meinertzhagen on page 817. It was part of the H. Ellis collection and sold at Sotheby's London in 1928. Light wear, nice patina, excellent condition. And, just look at that face!

About 30mm by 26mm by 22mm. Very sweet piece with light to moderate wear and nice patina. Gyokurin is listed as early 19th century in Lazarnick on page 425, also in Netsuke Familiar and Unfamiliar by Bushell page 493, also in Ueda Reikichi -- middle period. I was just informed that the mei is more likely Gyokumin, who is listed in Meinertzhagen on pages 96 and 97 mid-19th century. Paypal accepted. 4% discount for check, money order or wire transfer.
