Frog Netsuke

Recommended Posts

This Christmas a friend found for me an unexpected gift; a frog netsuke. He also found a rabbit one last year, so I guess he's the best friend ever. The wife got me a wallet :)

 

I know zero about netsuke, but love them. Any ideas on the mei on bottom? I really can't make anything of it.

Sweet objects, but I have to agree with Pietro on these. You might as well find a way of using them, (add to your car keys, hang from your belt, etc.) as that is what they were originally designed for way back when. Funnily enough I have an original example of a frog on a half walnut which I once showed on the International Netsuke website.
