Sorry JC, I have missinterpeted the title of this thread for an invitation to just show what others may have. Something told me it wasn't yours and you didn't ask any questions.
My bad! I can just remove, or Moderators may be able to move them somwhere else.

To recognize the excellent quality of the braided Sagemono, which Juan Carlos has shown, and to appreciate accordingly, here a very simple execution.
Without artistic ambition and made only for everyday use.

Simple beauty is still my choice! Loking at the ojime I shall assume it is also a regular sagemono size as well.
I read once that the original meaning and use of tonkotsu was a fisherman box/ basket and it actually was somewhat larger and carried in hand. Looking at this example, I can clearly invision it...

The beauty is also here in the simplicity.
The Netsuke also deserves attention.

Very nice and incredibly realistically carved ensemble indeed! Thank you, Klaus!

I bought this set mainly for the lacquer ojime attached as a netsuke, as it was a real bargain, but in close examination in turned to be not such a bad set, including the kitseruzutsu

Vlad, the stretching fellow senryuzutsu seems to be a very common theme in that particular application. I have one but everything is still in boxes from our recent household move to south central coastal California so no pic. Not even set up yet for Internet. The several examples I've handled were extremely similar and none of high quality (a relative term not meant to detract from either of our pieces).
When growing up we had the only Chinese chestnut trees in the community so I can really appreciate the quality and realism of the netsuke Klaus shows us. I hated raking up those empty prickly burrs in the fall.
Vlad, you asked about ojime size but nobody is giving dimensions on the tonkotsu either. Please get out your tapes.
