How can I know the difference between an authentic piece and a commercial item?
The challenge for the collector here is to recognize a commercial product as compared to a work of art created by a serious contemporary netsuke artist in Japan or abroad. Artistic intuition can recognize artistic excellence; education and experience complete the training. True netsuke were made during the 17th-19th centuries. Their motifs, styles and execution were purely congruent and contemporaneous with the culture from which they emerged. Some of the criteria such as skill in carving, originality of conception, completeness of finish, are quantifiable; other factors such as depth of feeling, humor, inherent esthetic excellence and philosophical implication are less measurable but are surely deeply felt. The inescapable tendency of expression that an era impresses upon its artists is an unarguable factor in determining authenticity, but what is most strongly felt in contemporary copies is that the creative spirit is missing, for nowhere to be seen is the originality, the fineness and subtlety of the tradition of authentic netsuke.

What is the single most important factor in evaluating netsuke?
The ultimate criterion is craftsmanship, artistry, and beauty. The basic elements of design, composition , balance and contrast must be present and must be grounded in fine workmanship. Even a common subject may be regarded as rare by virtue of original treatment and brilliant craftsmanship.
