  1. Meiji teapots can fetch a very high price at auction. One, estimated EUR 3000-4000, sold for EUR 93'750 at Christie's Paris in 2017 ! https://www.christies.com/lotfinder/lot/theiere-en-fer-de-style-komai-tetsubin-6117927-details.aspx?from=salesummery&intObjectID=6117927 Here is mine, a much more modest piece : Bernard D
  2. I made some new photos of my two silver kiseru for this thread. My favourite is the one carved with waves. It is signed Omori saku. Bernard D

  7. A small Iga tokkuri, by modern potter Manabu Atarashi. Bernard D

  9. Here is an old pottery : an oribe chaire, 10 cm. high, 16/17th century. Bernard D
  10. Hello Malcolm, A fine Kunisada triptych ! Thank you for posting. Is my print a triptych with a missing sheet? I don't know... According to the short note in my possession, the print is said to be by Shunki and described as a diptych featuring " feux d'artifice au pont Riogokou , daté 1807 sur la lanterne". Bernard D
  11. Fireworks in Japan... Bernard D
  12. Great ! Thank you, Steve. Bernard D
  13. Thank you for searching ! By the way, did you notice the clock on the wall in this surimono? I have another little print (in a sad state ) featuring such a clock, with more details. As you probaly know, they are called "kake-dokei". Here is a link to a real one : https://www.christies.com/lotfinder/Lot/a-Japanese-iron-framed-striking-kake-dokei-late-18thearly-4448865-details.aspx Bernard D
  14. Two surimonos featuring women and a child. The one on the left is by Tesai Hokuba. I was not able to identify the maker of the surimono on the right, nor its subject (any idea of what they are doing ?). Bernard D
  15. Brian, the frames of your prints are around 50/60 years old, as you suspected. Mine are similar (cf. pics). Personnally, in order to avoid bad surprises or unnecessary costs, I would leave the prints as they are and enjoy them as decorative objects on walls not exposed to direct sunlight. Bernard D
