18th Century - The First Whist Counter - Hoyle

This counter measuring 17mm in diameter and weighing 1.30grms is the first whist counter known and was struck in the 18th century, but when, nobody knows!

The counter shows the Bare Headed Bust of Hoyle, to the left, the hair being
tied with a ribbon.

The inscription is HOYLE above the bust and 1740 below.

It is fairly certain that the date is fictitious as Hoyle ( 1672-1769 ) published his
"Short Treatise on Whist"
in 1742.

The Reverse shows a script 3 moved through 270 degrees.

For an excellent blog on Hoyle see David Levy's writings at http://booksongaming.com/hoyle/

c1890s ART NOUVEAU STYLE CONTINENTAL WHIST GAMING BOX
This item looks like a book measuring 14 by 12 by 3 cms - It has enamelled playing cards with continental style pips on the front - It opens to reveal in the lid 4 MOP whist markers (one side having a suit symbol on it and the other 1 to 4 dots for scoring) - and four more enamelled cards as decoration - there also appears to be a space for a rule booklet but this is missing - Inside the base is space for two packs of cards - being continental these cards are 8.5 by 5.5 cms - The item is made of wood covered with possibly leather or similar material - The item is in excellent condition - no damage to the enamelling or to the box surface - the lock which look v ornate and has a decorative padlock on it is made of white metal (there is a small mark on one edge but not clear enough to read - we believe it is silver) This catch does not close firmly -there appears to be e a small metal strip is missing - The interior oval panel has a very slight stain at the base - otherwise it is excellent - The cards in are period French cards but a two piquet decks not full whist decks.
