Original French School Abacus

Abacuses, (or abacii) also called “counting frames,” date back earlier than the 14th century as the primary way of calculating and making the maths. Dating to the 1930s, this original French school abacus is in great condition. Set on a large timber frame and featuring a vertical bead frame with beautifully weathered painted timber sliding ball counters, this abacus is all types of wonderful! Both practical & decorative, use today as a children’s learning aid or as a decorative find within your interior.
