This is a glorious burl frog toggle: it was done in late Ming early Qing China. The original boxwood design has probably been all worn off. What remains is a proud frog with copper eyes sitting in a basket. We suspect when first made, all the basket was carved, the frog had warts. Today: the basket weaving has worn off. If there were warts they have been worn down due to constant handling. It is now smoothe and gentle to touch. It is an elegant piece. The bronze eyes are staring at you. The basket is about 4.5 cm long; it is about 6 cm wide at the opening. The frog is 2 cm long, almost 4 cm high at the head. The nails for the eyes are original.
