Category says this is Japanese, it is Chinese and I cannot change. drum is rosewood, probably not zitan; frog is stone -- serpentine? These are two very well done toggles. The ball inside the drum moves, the lotus seeds on the top and bottom move. They make the sound of a drum being hit during a Chinese opera or somesuch. Well carved, excellent condition. The stone frog is also very nice, a sleek frog, not a jumping one.

This a well-carved now old Japanese netsuke. The mythical beast depicted in this netsuke is still in excellent condition. The bottom seems to be missing some ivory. Not signed. Probably mid-late 19th Century.
