PLEASE NOTE THIS IS A NEW COLLECTOR'S ITEM, THERE ARE OTHER REPLICA NETSUKE AVAILABLE BUT WE BELIEVE OUR'S ARE OF THE BEST QUALITY. Netsuke (Japanese:根付) are miniature sculptures that were invented in 17th-century Japan to serve a practical function (the two Japanese characters ne+tsuke mean "root" and "to attach"). Traditional Japanese garments—robes called kosode and kimono—had no pockets; however, men who wore them needed a place to store their personal belongings, such as pipes, tobacco, money, seals, or medicines.
Their solution was to place such objects in containers (called sagemono) hung by cords from the robes' sashes (obi). The containers may have been pouches or small woven baskets, but the most popular were beautifully crafted boxes (inro), which were held shut by ojime, which were sliding beads on cords. Whatever the form of the container, the fastener that secured the cord at the top of the sash was a carved, button-like toggle called a netsuke.. .......PLEASE LOOK IN OUR SHOP FOR LOADS MORE INTERESTING ITEMS.BUY WITH CONFIDENCE LOOK AT OUR response FROM THOUSANDS OF HAPPY CUSTOMERS.WE ALWAYS COMBINE POSTAGE ON MULTIPLE PURCHASES.IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS PLEASE EMAIL OR IF YOU PREFER GIVE ME A CALL ON 07973132746..
