These objects are suspended at the obi of their owner by a cord. * Manju Netsuke *: Netsuke round and flat, usually full, which originates from their name after the popular bean paste cake in Japan. They are often with relief sculptures or with other types of decorations such as lacquer and marquetry. The decoration is applied to the surface either by direct relief sculpture or by engraving. They can be composed of two parts of identical size which are then assembled. Alongside these round, typical shapes, square or oval shapes coexist.
