Left side one is 500 and the right side on is not for sale.

I obtained these two boxwood toggles in Beijing from the same dealer – albeit the two purchases were spearhead by 10 years. The one on the left is in very good condition but it has been washed. The right is older, has a viable nick in his lower jaw and is very dynamic. Each one has a ball in his mouth, a Buddhist “tiling’. The balls may be simulated tongues – to make the sound of a frog croaking.
