Vintage Chinese Abacus with Dragon & Phoenix Motif Case

Regular price $78.00

Simply stunning and completely unusual.  British Malaya Shop's Vintage Chinese Abacus is a wonderful example of the ancient Chinese mathematical tool still used by many vendors to this day.  This abacus features 13 rows (14 would be considered "unlucky) of movable black beads on wooden/ brass connectors surrounded by a wooden frame.  In addition, it comes with a gorgeous red and gold carrying case with a traditional Chinese motif of the dragon (representing men) and the phoenix (representing women), or the yin and yang, on the top.  Inside the case is lined with beautiful Chinese script and lettering.  

This piece will enhance any home and work in multiple settings, but it would look particularly well in a study or office.  

Note: Given this piece is vintage it does have some wear and tear which in our opinion only enhances the uniqueness and authenticity of the item.
