Most of those wares were mass-produced to be exported to Southeast Asia and Japan.

One of the foot of the turtle is shorter than the others, which makes the netsuke lean, when put on a flat surface. Looking closely, it is not clear whether that is caused by a flaw or not. In any case, netsuke were not supposed to be presented in such ways, ...

This elegant chawan (tea bowl) dates from the Edo period (1615-1868). It is of small size and was probably used as a tabi-chawan (travel bowl) or for an outdoor tea ceremony.
