Japanese Netsuke

This delightful wooden netsuke of a female hare, carved by Toyomasa, fetched £43,250 at Bonhams London auction of the Adrienne Barbanson Collection. All lots of 58 Japanese netsuke were snapped up for a total of £611,213. To find out more about netsuke CLICK. If you want to view the real thing, rather than photos, you'll find netsuke in The British Museum, the V&A Museum and the Horniman Museum - all in London - and The Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge. Car boot sales? You'll be lucky.
