Beautiful carved manju or toggle; there are 5 bats on each side with inlaid eyes. You can look through the manju, the sides are carved with archaic form; in the center is a sign for long life. Great craftsmanship. Measurements: 7 cm / 8 mm. The bat is a symbol of happiness. Five bats stand for five forms of good fortune: long life, wealth, health, virtue and a natural death.
