Vintage leather and wood game set: cards, backgammon, cribbage, dominoes, Scrabble, chess, checkers, poker, roulette, craps, and accessories GypsyFaith Rummage VLGS

I bought this estate game set because I wanted to use the pieces in my mosaics, but when I opened it up and discovered it, it was much too fine to destroy for that purpose. It has that fabulous OLD smell, you know the one I mean. It’s wonderful. The cards are so beautiful and all the bits are complete. The plastic tiles are marvelous. The Scrabble is magnetic, which is adorable. I did not attempt to fasten the dice cup as it seemed stiff. I would OIL it before attempting to wrap it into a circle. I LOVE the old pencils in the game with their stamps, and the old score cards are wonderful too with someone’s family game still there in pencil. The box itself has wear – with the wood splitting slightly in corners, as I’ve shown. But in general, for such a heavy, old, fine game set, it’s in wonderful shape. The patina on all the stuff is beautiful. The smell is my favourite bit about this exquisite old set – but I just love everything about it and I want someone to use it and to love it like the family who had it before.
