Nice addition to my collection
The perfect gift for any horse or pony lover, our Pony Netsuke perfectly captures the spirit of this beautiful animal in miniature. This figurine is cast by hand in solid pewter in our workshop in Middlebury, Vermont.
What is a netsuke, you ask? Netsukes (pronounced "net-skees") are miniature animal figurines, traditionally tied to the sash of a Japanese kimono. They are usually carved into wood or ivory. Our pewter netsukes are a twist on the traditional ones, and many people like to collect them all as additions to their fairy or gnome gardens, or to use as game pieces, party favors, or stocking stuffers.
Horses and ponies symbolize strength, freedom, beauty, majesty, and spirit. They are also known for their emotional intelligence, used in equine therapy to heal trauma and anxiety.
It is also available as part of the Farm Friends set along with the Pig and Cow netsuke
Like all small objects, these can pose choking hazards for small children, so please supervise responsibly.
Dimensions & Specifications
Because we craft each netsuke by hand, all dimensions are approximate. Subtle variations are natural.
