We are proud to now be part of the Antiques are green campaign, to let people know our business is environmentally friendly.

I am sure you herd the news yesterday about the UK ivory ban, this has been hanging over us for a while. It’s not all bad, they are making it sound worse than it is, that’s the media for you. Rare and important works older than 100 years are exempt, this plays well for Netsuke as Meji period ended in 1912 giving us a clear 100 year gap.
So although this is not yet legal, to conform with the new regulations we will issue a certificate with each purchased Netsuke.
