Additional Notes:
Dutch ..... Letterlijk ���spiegeldeksel'. Deze netsuke-gravures bevatten een metalen spiegel, gewoonlijk van koper, zilver of een legering van koper en goud, op een kom van ivoor, hout of een ander materiaal. Zwaardenmakers begonnen ze te maken toen het in 1876 in Japan werd verboden om nog langer zwaarden te dragen. 
German ..... Wortwörtlich “Spiegel-Deckel”, enthielt die Netsuke-Schnitzerei einen Metallspiegel, meist aus Kupfer, Silber oder eine Legierung aus Kupfer und Gold, eingelegt in einen Behälter aus Elfenbein, Holz oder anderem Material. Sie wurde nach dem Verbot des Tragens von Schwertern 1876 als Ausweichprodukt für Schwertschmiede erfunden.
