Hello, yes, please .
Expert:  Nora replied 2 years ago.
Hi Lenny, I will be happy to help you with your netsuke, however I only assess one item per question here. Please choose one and send clear, in-focus images of the front, back, and underside of the piece as well as a very clear image of the signature. There may be an +Add Files button or if there is a toolbar with a paperclip icon showing above the box where you type in responses, then follow the steps on this link for sharing photos: I look forward to seeing the images. If you are unable to send photos right away, that is fine – there is not a time limit here. Sincerely,Nora

Hello. Sending you the pictures of the netsuke. It has rotating face (regular and devil). The size is approximately 2"*1". All design on the kimono, as well as signature seems to be like little dots. Thank you.
Expert:  Nora replied 2 years ago.
Thank you for the images.
Please allow me some time to look these over for you.
Expert:  Nora replied 2 years ago.
I am not able to make a signature match to the one on your netsuke.
I can provide an estimate of value based on comparables
I can opt-out and open your question again to all the experts at no additional fee. Opening the question is not a guarantee that you will receive a response.
Please let me know how you would like to proceed.
