Rare Illegal Early 20th Century Folk Art English Gambling Roulette Bar Game

About

A rare illegal early 20th century Folk Art gambling roulette game We are proud to offer a very rare folk-art example of an early 20th century English pub illegal gambling roulette game. A wonderfully tactile item, Hand made from scratch, a unique example and true one-off piece of gaming folk art. This item would have originally been used for purposes for illegal gaming in the early 20th century, Used in bars and public houses in London. The owner of the public house would have had this item hidden underneath the bar and bought it out so punters would be able to have a flutter at their leisure. This item would have originally accompanied a brass ball, we have added a glass ball to this item however. The wheel can be spun and works wonderfully for its age. A bespoke brass fitted wooden box that shows much age and natural patination due to its age and use. One thing is for sure, you won’t find another example. Size in inches approx.- H 3.5” x W 9” x D 9.5” Condition: These items are completely solid in structure and form, wear across surface and aged patina is present due to age and use, light chips and fading across the whole item as shown in the photos provided. Its strongly suggested to review all the photos provided carefully and propose any questions where details are unclear before a purchase is made.
