This item cannot be sold to buyers outside the EU.

Our gallery is located in Milan and we specialize in Japanese art. We specifically deal with works of art from the Edo-Meiji era, in particular netsuke, okimono, Shibayama, Satsuma, objects in lacquer and metal work.

In 2016 we published a catalog with more than 120 okimono from only the Italian collections "Japanese Okimono" sold by us in these years and annually we edit the volume "Japanese Masterpieces" masterpieces of Japanese art.

We hope to involve you in our passion and that our taste coincides with yours, so as to find benefit to be transmitted to others so that these works are always loved and respected.

Luca and Andrea

Bidders need to be aware that several countries do not allow importing objects derived from endangered and other protected species, even if a certificate of origin is provided. By bidding, you confirm that you have familiarised yourself with customs laws and regulations of your own country.

    Ricevuto ben curato nell'imballo, tuttavia noto che la presa a forma di caco é incollata, e non realizzata d'insieme con il coperchio.

    Buongiorno,
    sono sorpreso poichè l'oggetto è integro e ogni sua parte è nata insieme all'oggetto compreso la presa del coperchio.
    Tutte le prese delle scatole in avorio giapponesi, non furono ricavate dallo stesso blocco del coperchio, ma con un tassello spinato all'interno e ovviamente "incollate" come dice Lei all'origine, per impedire alla presa di staccarsi dal coperchio.
    Per quanto riguarda invece la sua affermazione "e non realizzata d'insieme con il coperchio" Le consiglio di osservare incisioni sul coperchio che raffigurano alcuni frutti e soprattutto Le ricordo che le scimmie nelle raffigurazioni giapponesi sono sovente raffigurante, mentre giocano con frutti come cachi.
    La invito gentilmente a modificare questa recensione, in quanto non c'è alcun motivo per ricevere un feedback negativo su questo lotto che è arrivato a noi fortunatamente nelle stesse condizioni di quando fu creato. Siamo i primi a sottolineare i difetti dei nostri oggetti quando presenti.
    Saluti

    Bonjour Eric, merci pour votre feedback. Le pied et le socle de l'okimono n'etait pas recolle, c'est seulement le filé naturelle de l'ivoire qui vous pouvez voir aussi dessous le socle. Cordialement Andrea
