Description

This miniature set of bone dominoes are complete and date from the early nineteenth century. They were probably made by a Napoleonic prisoner of war. They are certainly hand-made and quite crude. They are cased inside their original small mahogany box with sliding lid.

Length : 1.4 cm - 0.55 in

Declaration

Slade's Antiques has clarified that the Miniature Set of Prisoner of War Bone Dominoes (12220 / LA7786) is antique and it's date/period of manufacture is 1820.

Condition

Overall in good condition for their age, with some wear consistent with age and use. As is mentioned above the dominoes are quite crudely made and are not all uniform in terms of size and shape. There is some wear to the colouring and to the dominoes themselves. Some of the corners are chipped and the dominoes are overall grubby. The set is complete. The double four domino has an extra hole in the middle on each side (so that it resembles a double five) but the centre hole has not been coloured in - this appears to be a maker's error. The box is sturdy and in good condition, but has some light scuffing and wear as might be expected.
