Japanese (?) Silver Figures-What the heck are they?

Postby silvercrown » Sat Mar 15, 2008 11:04 am

We acquired 15 of these little silver figures in a lot at an auction. They are Japanese (?) and low silver. They are hollow. The largest figure is 1 3/4" tall to give you perspective. Does anyone know what these little guys are?

I think Chinese and, despite the number of them, will hazard a guess that they are fingernail sheaths.

Chinese...that figures, if indeed they are fingernail sheaths. I remember seeing those in old movies. Thanks so much for the information.
