C1830 Regency (Georgian) Playing Card Box
This is an asymmetric (ie two sets of four sides are the same length not all eight) – octagon shaped card box measuring approx 11inches by 9 inches. It is made of rosewood with brass inlaid. No Key.
It has 4 compartments for playing cards and 5 for gaming counters. There are also 4 items used for lifting out the playing cards – these are card sized covered to match the box with ribbon attached on which the cards were placed – the ribbons could then be used to lift the cards plus base – one has both ribbons the others one ribbon.
The inside of the box is in very good condition – original covering, clean and bright. The exterior is very good – missing a couple of short brass inlays from the top and three from the sides – here is a very small knock on the front edge – otherwise it is lovely – cards are for illustration and NOT included in the price – however we can provide period card if required at additional cost.
