The Collection Takuhiko Fujita Tokyo

Axel Burchardt's (24.10.2013 10:56) announcement that the hitherto mysterious and apparently otherwise unknown Nereus-Stiftung of Switzerland was based on a private antiquities collection of Takuhiko Fujita at least explains where the objects were before they "surfaced" as part of a long-term loan to Jena University. There is a Collection Takuhiko Fujita Tokyo listed by the University of Oxford's e-research centre. Greek vases from his collection being loaned to outside institutions are mentioned by Erica Simon in two articles found in an online search, and in Alexandre G. Mitchell's "Greek Vase-Painting and the Origins of Visual Humour. It seems the collector also wrote at least one book on the subject: "Girishia Etorusuku bijutsu [Greek and Etruscan arts]. There is material from the same collection in the University of Würzburg, as Raimund Karl points out, there are three pieces of antique glasses of this Foundation in its Martin von Wagner Museum (see here page 17).

I am sure other such as David Gill and Christos Tsirogiannis will have better information  about this collection.
