In traditional Japanese dress from the 17th century, 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 根付 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 upside-down.  

Netsuke definition: The term or two characters in Japanese for Netsuke mean root or to attach to.

Mermaid Combing Hair Netsuke bead measures 34 by 22 by 56.5mm.
