Mom has a netsuke and we decided to look up on the internet to find out some information about it. I was shocked at how many sites dedicated to netsuke. The word netsuke is usually translated as "toggle," but it's actually more like a keychain in that it was fastened at the end of a cord attached to a traditional Japanese carrying case (sagemono).
I found on with the rotating head like moms here.
Big collection and prices on Antique Netsuke, Netsuke Online has lots of images, even on Flickr. A nice collection at Bolton Museum, Netsuke Resources Online.
