A rainbow of counting beads sure to entice any child (or child at heart). This abacus features 10 rows of ten wooden beads strung on metal rods in a wooden frame. This child's toy was made by the Holgate company in the 1950s. It would be a charming decor piece for a child's room, and any space needing a bit of color. It stands 11-1/2" tall.

The abacus is in decent condition for its age - it has all of the beads & rods, but it looks like one was pulled out of place and then put back, which left a scratch on the inside of the frame. Nontheless this age-worn toy is sure to please a vintage enthusiast.
