Description
 
A beautiful old Tibetan prayer wheel filled with a paper scroll of mantras and then covered in black leather to protect the prayers from damage. A style that is particularly favoured in East Tibet. This piece displays a lovely usage patina and spins very nicely. The top of the drum sits on a wooden handle with an old coin at the apex to help the drum spin. It has a heavy metal counterbalance. Old traditional items like this in such nice condition are now incredibly difficult to find.

Origin: East Tibet
Age: Early to Mid 20th C
Material: Wooden Handle with Leatherbound prayers.
length 10.5 inches
