EuroNetsuke is the European chapter of the International Netsuke Society and has existed for over 20 years. We work to create publications and events that benefit our members and enhance their netsuke knowledge and awareness. Our members receive two high-quality journals a year. Each journal is packed with interesting articles from leading experts, dealers and collectors.
In addition to this, we organise trips to handle museum and private collections across Europe that would otherwise be inaccessible to collectors. Our events are sociable and end with an enjoyable meal.
Our membership is not restricted to Europe; we welcome members from across the globe.
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.
