This unique, antique abacus, a "soroban" in Japanese, is hand-crafted in Japan with hand-carved kanji writing across the back, along with kanji numbers labeling the front. It measures approximately 4 1/2" tall and 13" long and is a 1/5 soroban - 1 bead above and 5 below - a design used from the late 1800's to 1930.

The abacus, famous for being a counting tool used primarily in Asia, actually originated in ancient Mesopotamia. The abacus is still a common mathematical tool used daily throughout all of Asia.
