I was at a local antique show and a seller had a box full of loose odds and ends. Among the assorted items were a few menuki that looked pretty good. This amost never happens around these parts so i took a gamble. What do you folks think?

You did all right if the price was good. Too bad one is a singleton. John

The pair at bottom right are, I believe, ornaments off a kiseru (tobacco pouch).  Note the double posts on the back of one.

Grey, i was thinking the same, but the lack of any pins on the other one..........?  As for the others, anyone care to take a guess at school? age?
