    This Iwachu cast iron tortoise okimono is 3" long x 2" wide x 1" high and weighs 9.1 ounces. It came in a Kotobuki cardboard box and has a Kotobuki label on the bottom. Neither it or the box were marked "Iwachu", but I am confident that Iwachu made this as every other cast iron okimono sold by Kotobuki is by that foundry. I am building a collection of Iwachuo kimono as I find them at good prices.

      Thanks for your comments, Eileen! Nice to have such a personal piece that you can carry with you everywhere! Iwachu makes some great stuff. I have my eye on some of their wind chimes, but haven't taken the plunge, yet....
