DESCRIPTION: A Chinese peach toggle (guajian) crafted from a flat piece of burl with large spreading leaves, representing longevity in Chinese iconography. Two holes on either side of the stem were used for threading a cord from which this toggle would have been suspended as a counterweight to some other object, such as a tobacco pouch. A nice example of Chinese folk art dating from the mid 1800’s or earlier, this toggle is in overall fine condition with normal signs of use. DIMENSIONS: 1 ½” high (4 cm) x 2” wide (5 cm). For size comparison, the last photo shows this toggle along with our recently listed toggle, SN120.
