Vintage Horse Netsuke, Tagua nut netsuke of a lying horse, Japanese Vegetable Ivory toggle carving, collectible horse figurine, horse gift
A very mellow coloured tagua nut carving of a lying horse, two holes on it's belly make it possible to loop a string through and use it as a netsuke.
In a Vegetable Ivory, no animals were harmed to make this item - yet we still get that lovely slightly yellow colouration.
Beautiful craftsmanship (I especially love the soft curve of the spine and the little black inset eyes) and signed on the tail in Kanji, this tactile little item is a work of art.
Size: 4.5 x 3.5 x 3.5 cm
