Here are a couple of ancient netsuke in honor of fall and Halloween from my early carving days, - could explain why I still have them...

 

The tub of pumkins is boxwood and osage orange (the tub).

 

The other is a kagamibuta style in antler with ebony inlays, boxwood ojime.

Thanks, Doug! I've always liked the simple netsuke themes with vegetables and small animals - especially the Iwami and So schools. Unfortunately they don't always hold a lot of sway with collectors of contemporary carvers, especially American collectors. They seem to want carvings a little more "busy," shall we say?
