Might have an option on this Netsuke for about USD 300.


Little longer than 2 inches.


Knowing nothing of Netsuke, I am of course looking to check if anyone knowledgeable would consider this a good deal :-) Do I see a mei-like scribling top left quadrant of backside Picture?


Also, can anyone see offhand if this is Ivory. Seller doesnt state.

They look like bone to me. Also I've seen better. I would skip on this.

I don't see any quality at all there.
$300 Buys you a fairly ok tsuba. I would pass.

Looks more like composition to me.  Finish is wrong.   The cracking/flaking on the bottom (left side of the photo) is wrong.  The staining looks like something out of China from the 70's or 80's (maybe).


Without 'hands-on', just opinion.
