Chinese Netsuke

Netsuke, invented in 17th-century Japan, were used to store the personal belongings of particularly pocket-less men during the Edo peruid. They usually made out of ivory or wood, and are only a few inches tall in size. They are used to fasten the cords of a basket or pouch to a man’s waistband.

Netsuke can also be made out of stone or even porcelain. Early motifs on Japanese netsuke were influenced by the Chinese history, culture, and customs. Netsuke featured images such as foo dogs, dragons, and masks. These works could vary from totally three dimensional and round, or mostly flat with relief carved images.
