"There are fine examples from Kyoto, Osaka, Edo, Nagoya, Gifu and Hakata, as well as unsigned and unattributable pieces from the early 18th to the late 19th century. . . . By some standards the collection is not large. However, it does not need to be, there is much to be said for quality, rather than quantity and the present collection has the former in abundance."
Neil K. Davey
"It is a tribute to the Cohen's artistic awareness that they have been able to assemble so many works of art in these two areas, while maintaining the common bonds of excellent workmanship, charming subject matter and, above all, that elusive bit of 'magic' (for want of a better word) that turns an inanimate object into something special and important."
This collection has since been split up and distributed to various family members and some of the collection has subsequently been sold.
