Thanks RAF for reminding me of this forgotten netsuke.

Here is a whole dried mandarin that needs a lot of TLC (5.6x2.7cm).

This is the material thread, so here's an item I had a number of years ago, and it was certainly made of an unusual material--dried orange peel. Light as a feather. Not sure I've seen another orange peel one around.
