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...

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.

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...

If you browse my catalog, you will see that I do not stock a lot of unsigned work. This is mainly because I try to be very selective as to what I sell, if I don't like something, I don't stock it. However when a piece stands out, I can't resist, such is the case with this guy. The work is nicer and more detailed than most, the twisted wire antennae and legs as well as the well executed deep stamping, set it above the rest. I suspect this is pre-war dating to the 1930's given the quality...

Mark Chee needs no introduction, he was one of the most influential smiths in the Dine' jewelry tradition. This fine buckle is heavy silver with five turquoise stones ( look like Godber -- which he favored ). It measures 3" by 1 1/4" by about 1/2" thick. Excellent vintage condition. Hallmarked with " CHEE " inside the eagle hallmark.

Madeline Beyuka started making jewelry in 1954 and worked for many years with her husband Eddie, she continued working on her own after they divorced. This beautiful pin pendant is constructed from multiple colors of carved turquoise inlaid into silver. This piece most likely dates to about 20 to 30 years ago when she was in her prime. Now her children also make jewelry. 1 7/8" tall by 1 3/8" wide, excellent condition.

This beautiful necklace is a classic example of the jewelry made by Dan Simplicio. There are many who attribute almost anything with coral and leaves to him, I do not make attributions lightly. I have been working with Native American jewelry for about 25 years now, and I also seek the advise of others before I attribute a piece. The consensus is this is the work of the master himself. Unmarked silver with nice coral and what looks like Morenci mine turquoise...

McBride Lomayestewa was active from the late 1950's when he learned at the guild, until his passing in 2002. His work is not common, and is highly sought after by collectors. This beautiful pin is hallmarked on the back by the artist and the Hopi Guild hallmark. The pin is slightly convex and measures about 1 3/4" by 1 1/2". About 22 grams, can be used as a pin or pendant on a necklace. Excellent vintage condition.

This wonderful old pin is made of turquoise, spiny oyster shell, white shell, and jet in a silver cast base decorated with coiled silver wire and other applied silver pieces. There is a hairline crack in one turquoise piece on the chest, and a small chip in the spiny oyster in the hat which is most likely original to the piece. The tiered head dress and the low placed elongated eyes are characteristics of the work of David Tsikewa. 2 3/4" tall by 1 1/4" wide at arms, about 16 grams.
