An old netsuke , perhaps 17th century showing  Kongo Rikishi, staghorn, 91mm high.

A Seiobo netsuke from the 19th century, staghorn, 100mm high.

I love this material.




 Hirado porcelain netsuke from the 19th century. 83mm high.

 

In memory of my dear friend Otto Heinrich Noetzel,  I like this material very much.

I like old simple netsuke. They show the difference in taste

between the early users and the late collectors.

 

Eagle of boxwood with a lot of patina, so as the Fukurokuju
