Text and captions in French (signatures in Japanese)

This is a catalog of superb netsuke and sagemono (hanging objects) selected from the collections of members of Association Franco-Japonaise. The pieces were shown in Paris in late October, 2019, coincided with the INS Convention. Of particular interest are beautiful kiseruzutsu (pipecases) and exquisitely crafted yatate (portable writing sets).

Available in Japan at Sagemonoya (https://www.netsuke.com) and worldwide at:

I think this catalog reflects the taste of discerning European collectors and a long history of collecting Japanese objects in Europe.
