|Title:||TOGGLE GOURD ABACUS|
|Size:||4.00" x 2.00" x 1.00"|
Lacquered burl wood knot with inset miniature metal abacus with glass beads. The lacquered naturally formed burled knot is reminiscent of a gourd which symbolizes a wish for robust health. The reverse of the burl has a metal hinged plate which when open reveals a miniature abacus with glass beads. The abacus served as an emblem for the businessman or merchant and by sympathetic association, would lend skill and ability in Mathematics to the wearer.
