How does one appraise the different materials of authentic netsuke?
Material--whether ivory or wood or stag antler, must be of fine quality and lustrous. Closed cracks are tolerated in direct proportion to age. Wood should be solid and well polished. Stag antler must be solid and free of patches. Materials such as hornbill, amber, rhinoceros horn, tortoise shell and mother of pearl, though rare and desirable, are not often found in superbly carved-in-the-round netsuke.
