Subject:Netsuke Id and age
Posted By: Victoriancobweb Thu, Aug 20, 2020 IP: 2600:1700:6831:7bf0:

Any help on an Id and age of this netsuke would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

My feeling is that this example could be from very late Meiji period through to very early Showa period. So 1910-1930's.
Its very difficult sometimes to put a definitive age given the poor quality pictures posted.
The other examples posted by you are in my opinion all later than this one.

This is the Id on the bottom. Help with who this may be would be appreciated. All these pictures are of the same netsuke.

IMO, the signature reads 'Yoshikawa' (吉
川). Taisho to Showa period.

Guy,
You are right, it reads,吉川 Yoshikawa.

Thank you, the little nuances in the characters are the key. Especially if you (meaning me) do not read the language.
I appreciate all the help.
