Large Handmade Japanese Abacus

Large Handmade Japanese Abacus

50.00

On my last buying trip to Japan I discovered a hoard of abaci tucked away at one of my favorite thrift stores in Kyoto. I bought one and it sold immediately once I returned home. Lesson learned! This time I managed to find 5 really lovely examples and I’m excited to offer them here. They are listed individually but if you are interested in multiples we can work out a discount.

This is the largest of the lot but it might be made from a denser wood as it feel considerably heavier than a few of the others. Features traditional Japanese woodworking details like a dove tail join at each corner. The wood has a beautiful patina to it.

Large Japanese text has been carved into the back adding a really nice detail.

Measures 4.5” x 14.5”
