JAPANESE
 

"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

CHINESE
 

"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."

Robert Hall

'In Search of Netsuke and Inro' by George Cohen

This Book (now out of print) was published in the UK
by 'The Jacey Group of Companies' in 1974
ISBN 9780950410500


IN SEARCH OF NETSUKE & INRO

by
George A. Cohen


With a Forward by Douglas J. K. Wright

 

An important private collection consisting of 280 selected netsuke in ivory and wood together with 76 choice inro, all complete with ojime and netsuke - as well as several fine lacquer boxes, these are all individually described and reproduced, nearly life size, within the 32 full page colour plates.

The connoisseur will appreciate the excellent work of several 18th century master carvers as well as that of more recent artists. 

This book differs from most other studies, as it is not purely technical, although it contains useful and practical information. 

In the hope of attracting new enthusiasts the author has written an entertaining account of his personal experiences in forming this collection, relating many amusing incidents as well as describing the pleasure and satisfaction to be enjoyed by those who collect these elusive miniatures of Japanese art. 

An introduction was written by Douglas J.K.Wright.
