This high relief silver repousse prayer cylinder is mounted on a wooden handle with silver mounts at the top and bottom. The repousse displays three seated Buddha images among dragons and other Buddhist elements. It is topped with a silver umbrella and ball-shaped finial. Attached to the side by a short chain is a lead weight that promotes the spinning around the steel shaft mounted in the wooden handle. Both the finial and the cylinder lid are removable to be able to hold a written prayer. It currently retains its old woodblock printed prayer. It is in good working condition. The silver weight is approximately 196 grams (6.9 ounces).

Length 11 ¼ in., Diameter: 3 ¼ in.
