This is an authentic full maizhen, made of chicken wing wood (Jichimu): we have never seen one in many years of collecting. It is a complete object: the place where he arm rests to take the pulse is connected to the base with strong wire. It folds together perfectly for the Chinese medical doctor to carry with him The patina on the maizhen itself is great, evidence of much use and many presumably cured patients.
