How can I be sure that a fine unsigned netsuke is worth the price?
While a signature provides a certain degree of assurance, this documentation may tell us nothing about the prominence or skill of the particular artist in his time. The great netsuke carver Yoshimura Shuzan never signed his works, and since the genuineness of a netsuke signature is often difficult to determine with certainty, it follows that collecting for intrinsic value rather than depending on signatures alone is the best way to build a truly superb collection. The last word on this subject is the fact that a decade ago an unsigned netsuke was sold at Sotheby's for $30,000.
