Recent Events and Meetings

Our recent visit to Leiden

In 2019 we spent a fun weekend in the beautiful city of Leiden, Holland. We enjoyed a day handling a selection of netsuke from the Siebold museum’s collection, a guided walking tour of the city and enjoyable dinners. The weekend culminated with a talk on fake netsuke by Rosemary Bandini.

Handling session at the British Museum

In 2018, our members were fortunate enough to enjoy a private handling session at the British Museum, who possess a fantastic netsuke collection. The session coincided with Asian Art Week; that evening we attended a talk, and the following day enjoyed handling Bonham’s latest netsuke sale.

INS Convention, Paris

Every two years, the INS holds a weeklong convention for collectors.  Many of our members enjoyed spending a week together listening to lectures from some of the leading experts in the field. The week ended with dinner on the Seine and a charity auction.
