Subject:Is This a Real Netsuke
Posted By: Howard Dennis Mon, Jul 30, 2018 IP: 68.1.146.100

This is supposed to be a netsuke. I have never seen one like this. Is it a real netsuke or is it a game piece or something else repurposed into a netsuke?

Elephant ivory, for sure. NOT tagua nut
Perhaps the year of the horse.
Someone else may see other clues as well.

Real ivory 100%.
Japanese netsuke probably dates to late 19th century or later.
