Antique Treen Carved Wooden Travelling Solitaire Board with Integral Box 19th C
Here we have a very collectable and decorative antique treen item - a hand crafted portable solitaire board with integral storage box for the pegs and a carrying handle.
The board dates from the mid 19th century and is octagonal in shape. The box or drawer is tucked underneath the board and slides off to reveal the little hand turned wooden pegs that have been stained red.
The board measures 6 7/8th in. long including the handle and is 3 1/2 in. wide. It has good patination and weighs just 47 g.
It is in good order with a chip to the end of the handle and the little stopper bar that holds the storage drawer in place has been replaced.
This is a great item for display and use and would make a great addition to any collection of games or treen.
