Whether staying in or on holiday, a rousing game of backgammon or checkers is a lovely way to while away the hours! These were all the rage in the late 1800s through the turn of the century; fashionable for picnics or taking to the shore and keeping oneself amused.This particular example is in wonderful condition with all of the paper intact and still nicely clean and colored. The chips are missing a few especially of the white; these appear to have been cut from oxbone or some other very hard surface. A wonderful addition for your demoiselle and her entertainment needs and this one has just arrived from Paris!
