For centuries, people in Asia have used an ancient counting tool to perform mathematical operations. The Chinese calculator name is “suanpan,” but it is also known as an abacus. Dating back to at least the 12th century, this simple counting device has been passed down through the centuries with its original design and purpose virtually unchanged.
This listing is for an antique abacus, it’s age unknown. This is old handcrafted piece that comes with imperfections which we think only adds to its beauty and character.
