These two pieces of Japanese Netsuke appear to be a set, matching in style, size, detail, and craftsmanship. The female is an erotic piece and the male has a phallic looking item perched in front of him. Authenticity and age is unknown although there is some grain visible and the very faint resemblance of Schreger lines. Both have traditional Netsuke holes but very little rub in the way of rub marks or signs of actual use; the hole edges are sharp without any sign of actual wear. They do not appear to have any seams and hand tooling marks appear to be authentic. A nice, adult themed set probably made to be collector pieces when Netsuke gained popularity in the West. HWAC does not guarantee authenticity and has provided an accurate and full description to the best of our ability. Every item we sell is available for live preview 2-3 days prior to the auction or by appointment.
