Fits many different wrist sizes. Central plaquette of round shadowbox with carved recessed deity figure is surrounded by a bamboo style carved openwork round framing. Beautiful carved bakelite is spiritually connected with carved jade and other carved hard stone pieces, so the subject matter is quite appropriate to the material and its workmanship. 2 inch in diameter central round tapered around in back to less than 1", Spring hinge is tight and functions perfectly. Excellent vintage condition.
