What's a netsuke: Netsuke is a
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 garment—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' sash (obi).
The containers may be a pouch or a small woven basket, but the most
popular were beautifully crafted boxes (inro),
which were held shut by an 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.
Netsuke, like the inro
and ojime, evolved over time from being strictly utilitarian into
objects of great artistic merit and an expression of extraordinary
craftsmanship. Such objects have a long history reflecting the
important aspects of Japanese folklore and life. Netsuke production was
most popular during the Edo period in
Japan, around 1615-1868. Today, the art lives on and some modern works
can command high prices in the UK, Europe, the USA, Japan and
