Netsuke

In traditional Japanese dress, the inro box hung from the obi (belt) of a kimono, on a double cord. At the top of the cord, a large carving called a netsuke (pronounced nets-kay) acted as a toggle to anchor the inro. Most of our netsuke have authentic double-holes in the base, so when strung on a necklace they will hang upsidedown. They range in size from 1 ½ to 2 inches.
