The European chapter of the

International Netsuke Society

The European Chapter of the International Netsuke Society has existed for over 20 years, but as we cover a large geographical area it has inherent problems arranging meetings which everyone can attend.

At a board meeting in 1975 the idea of holding  ‘meetings on paper’ was mooted, with the publication of a modest magazine that would cover European events and give a voice to European collectors.

In the autumn of 1975 we proudly published our first issue of 28 pages, initially a quarterly magazine, but now a larger magazine which comes out twice a year.

In 2009 we took a  step forward, producing the autumn issue in colour.

You can look at a pdf of this by clicking on the image on our ‘magazine’ section. (soon on line!)

We are entirely funded by dealer advertisements and membership subscriptions.

If you would like to join the European chapter and receive future issues,
please contact David Louis Brown atdl.brown68@ntlworld.com

The cost of membership is:

  • United Kingdom : £20.00

  • Europe: €25.00

  • Rest of World: US$ 40.00

International Netsuke Society!
We are always looking for new articles and members’ letters to publish. We also organize several events a year, including visits to museum collections and occasional private viewings of museum collections, as well as ‘show-and-tell’ evenings. The bigger our membership, the more we can organize.

This is your website.

Please let us know what you think, and give us any suggestions you might have to enhance our community.
