Netsuke, Inro and Sword Fittings

Christie’s is pleased to present this important American collection originally formed in the early 20th century and held privately in the same family for the last 100 years. Each lot is of exceptional quality and rarity and reflects the refined style of the Japanese gentleman and demonstrates how these pieces continue to influence fashion and design today - yesterday’s netsuke is today’s cufflink or cell phone charm. For anyone who read Edmund de Waal’s best-seller, The Hare with the Amber Eyes, and was drawn to the culture of netsuke, this sale offers a rare opportunity to begin or add to a collection with pieces signed by major artists such as Sansho, Tametaka and Toyomasa.
