What are the defining features of authentic netsuke?
An authentic netsuke should be in compact form and shape, and be suitable for use. It must not be angular, or pointed; otherwise it will not qualify as a netsuke, regardless of how artistic it may be as a carving. Its size must be suitable for use with an inro, pouch or purse. A carving too large, bulky or heavy to be worn comfortably may be suitable as an okimono but not as a netsuke. Himotoshi, the holes for attaching a cord with which the netsuke is fastened to the sash, inro, pouch, etc. must be carefully placed so as not to mar the design.
