    I just picked these up recently and I'm crazy about them. I've tried to look them up but I haven't had a lot of luck. I am hoping someone here can tell me if they are real.
    Thanks!

      They don't look real, but look for the grain lines to see if they're ivory. Its netsuke by the way, pronounced "net-skay."

      Real, but sadly just not old. Likely 20th century tourist piece. Shunga netsuke like this are almost always tourist pieces. The true Japanese shunga netsuke are much, much more subtle in conveying erotic content.
