More About this Item


Description: Two Foo Dog Netsukes Carved From Wood, Edo Period. Netsuke are miniature sculptures that were invented in 17th century Japan to serve a practical function. Men who wore them needed a place to store their personal belongings, such as pipes, tobacco, money, seals, or medicines. In English the word may be italicized or not, with American English tending to favor the former and British English the latter. Their solution was to place such objects in containers called sagemono, that hung by cords from the robes. The fastener that secured the cord at the top of the sash was a carved, button-like toggle called a netsuke. Netsuke 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 1615Ð1868. Estimated more than 100 yrs old. (Pangaea Auctions) Size: See Ruler Photo. (Photos Represent The Condition Of The Lot.)
