Bilboquet

P7270013 (Copy).JPG

Price: £ 110
Dimensions: H. with ball 22cm
Reference: SA 2421

Fine Rosewood bilboquet. This is the ' Cup & ball' game popular in the 17th century, primarily with adults! This George III example is particularly well turned in rosewood which would have proved expensive at the time. Note: the string appears to be made from hair and may be original. c. 1790.
