Welcome to Marple Antiques & Collectables

Sydney, Australia – Marple Antiques and Collectables, one of the leading online antique stores in Australia with customers all over the world, has recently acquired a collection of Japanese Netsukes and is offering them for sale individually on their eCommerce site.
Netsuke are small, miniature sculptures that were hand carved into material like ivory, wood, and boar tusk. In the 17th century, netsuke were used by men to fasten items, like money pouches and tobacco boxes, to kimonos (which had no pockets). They became a type of fashion statement, and were hand carved into intricate patterns and designs. Most are no bigger than a few cm, and still in exquisite quality for their age. They are all highly collectable.
“We are so excited to add these to our store,” said Ester Fran, founder of Marple Antiques and Collectables. “We’ve noticed that more and more people are collecting smaller, one of a kind items, and these netsuke meet both of those descriptors.
Ester is especially excited about the tagua nut netsukes. Known as “vegetable ivory,” these netsukes are carved from the seeds of a palm tree, making them free of animal cruelty with a similar look and texture.
“Historically, many of these items were made with ivory, and we understand that that can make some people uncomfortable today,” said Ester. “Tagua nut netsukes are rare, and give collectors a chance to own a truly one-of-a-kind item that is also free of controversy and still hundreds of years old.”
This collection is available as part of their Asian Antiques, and can be found on their website at Ester recommends that anyone interested in buying an antique netsuke visit soon, as each one is one-of-a-kind and is likely to sell quickly.
