Netherlands: N/A, 1875. An attractive Nineteenth Century dominos set. Tiles are hand carved on bone and painted, each piece riveted with a brass pin to a dark hardwood backing. Held in a contemporary handmade wooden box. Complete set 28 dominos. (The traditional Sino-European domino set consists of 28 dominoes, featuring all combinations of spot counts between zero and six.) Box is 160 by 60mm (6¼ by 2¼ inches).
Condition: Overall in good period condition. There is a little chipping and the odd crack to some of the bone tiles (the wooden backings are in excellent condition). The wooden box is a little loose, but holding.
