Footnotes

  • 木彫金工根付 鬼面役者 銘「安親」 18世紀後期/19世紀前期

    Provenance: W.W. Winkworth collection, acquired in 1965.

    While it is known that members of the Tsuchiya family of sword-fitting makers made netsuke (see the Catalogue of the Wrangham Collection: part I, 9th November 2010, lot 36), it is unclear if one of the family made the entire present example or was merely responsible for the oni mask.
