netsuke signatures
  • Hi, I am Nesuka and have just purchased a Netsuke. It is very old (1800s) and I wish to discover artist name engraved on it in japanese. So far no luck... it could be ancient kanji symbols. Anyone out there who can help. I have made huge list of artists in English alphabet but cant find the symbols here. Thanks
  • If you upload a photo and link to it on the forum we can try to help you.
  • Thanks, I will try... its quite difficult to decipher even with magnification!
