A netsuke is a small carved ornament, either ivory or wood worn as part of Japanese traditional dress as a toggle by which an article can be attached to the sash of the kimono.
This netsuke turtle figurine is a beautiful piece, carved in brown wood - boxwood - depicting the turtle sitting on a rock, with realistic detailing. The decorative item is used and in a very good condition overall. A great novelty piece to have.
