An ivory netsuke of a deer Circa 1800 An ivory netsuke of a shishi Kyoto, late 18th century A fine single-case lacquer inro By Shibata Zeshin

"I have been associated with auctions of Japanese netsuke all my life, but I have never had the privilege of handling such an outstanding group. The Harriet Szechenyi Collection was the product of an exceptional eye which completely explains the astounding prices that collectors from Japan, Europe, North America and Russia willingly bid to secure these superb carvings."
