Welcome to Rosemary Bandini Japanese Art

The latest Japanese netsuke, inro and sagemono catalogues, also featuring a selection of Japanese netsuke, inro, sagemono and kiseruzutsu for sale, published books and catalogues for sale, updates on upcoming netsuke exhibitions, news and calendar events in the netsuke world in general.

Rosemary Bandini is pleased to offer this selection of netsuke and kiseruzutsu from the items gathered over the last year, now that we are at last free to visit old friends and suppliers. The search to find objects that have not come from auction gets ever more challenging, so it is ever more gratifying to locate another treasure.
