Old wooden abacuses make great, decorative items! These have wooden frames and wooden beads that slide on metal rods. Abacuses like these were also used to teach children in schools. They are also primitive counting/calculating devices that were used in markets before cash registers and calculators became the norm. We have a few of these available; we found them while on a trip to Lithuania and brought them back with us! These are well preserved and complete. You won't be disappointed!
