Ex collection Arlette Katchen Paris, France
Netsuke made of iron and soft metals were produced by the same artisans who created sword fittings. Their skill was at a very high level to that expected by the Samurai patrons. These two finely sculpted examples are also rare as they are not ‘Kagamibuta’ that is clasps made for sagemono or pipe cases, or ‘Kanagu’, the metal fittings used on the front of pipe bags, all of which were more commonly made by the craftsmen of sword furniture.
