Item Description

ITEM: Chinese Abacus in Black Painted  Box  - Dragon and Phoenix

STYLE: Classical Chinese 1800's


Colour :  Black

This Brand NEW Chinese Abacus with Black Painted Box is a fully functional reproduction of the classical styles of Chinese ornaments and tools of the 1800's.

The Abacus

The Abacus is still in use today by shopkeepers in Asia and "Chinatowns" all over the world. The use of the abacus is still taught in Asian schools, and some  schools in the West. Blind children are taught to use the abacus where their sighted counterparts would be taught to use paper and pencil to perform calculations.

One particular use for the abacus is teaching children simple mathematics and especially multiplication; the abacus is an excellent substitute for rote memorization of multiplication tables, a particularly detestable task for young children. The abacus is also an excellent tool for teaching other base numbering systems since it easily adapts itself to any base.

Anatomy & Construction - Abacus

The Abacus can be used to perform addition, subtraction, division and multiplication & can also be used to extract square-roots and cubic roots.

The abacus is typically constructed of various types of hardwoods and comes in varying sizes. The frame of the abacus has a series of vertical rods on which a number of wooden beads are allowed to slide freely. A horizontal beam separates the frame into two sections, known as the upper deck and the lower deck. This completely functional and historical item is presented in a wonderful hand painted Case.

The Abacus Case

This beautiful piece is made of wood and leather, using old traditional Chinese techniques, the leather is wrapped around the wood and bound tightly so that the skin is smooth and perfectly formed to the piece. Stylish brass fixtures and latch complete the exterior. Inside the box is lined with aged Chinese paper filled with characters,  adding to the authenticity and feel of the product.

The lid of the box is 100% Hand Painted. The case has been treated to help preserve the paintings and the exterior.

It embraces the artistry and craftsmanship of the finest traditional Chinese art.
