Special display of netsuke donated by Mr. Watanabe Masanori @ Osaka Museum of History

From March 23 to May 15, 2023, a special display of newly acquired items was held at Osaka Museum of History, including 10 superb pieces of contemporary and antique netsuke (out of 20 in total) donated by Mr. Watanabe Masanori, who is a past president of the Japan Netsuke Society and one of the top collectors of netsuke in the world.

Japanese information on this display can be seen at:

Hanakagesho / Nezu no Netsukeya also has some tweets on it, which can be seen below. Please have a look, since all the netsuke are wonderful! (Some of them have been published in my little Japanese book on netsuke, and click here for the information in Japanese.)
