Hi! I have 2 items I found that turned out to be netsukes. I am not sure what materials they are made from and was wondering if anyone could tell me. They have a plastic-look but I do not believe they are plastic, but maybe horn or tortoise shell? They do look old also and the square one has a bone or ivory button-like piece in center.

Welcome to the forum.

They are press molded from horn.
