Over 100 Antique Wooden Carrom Board Pieces W/ 2 Instruction Books Ca 1900 For Sale
Over 100 ANTIQUE Wooden CARROM Board Pieces w/ 2 INSTRUCTION Books ca 1900
You are offerding on an assortment of antique Carrom board pieces. These are early, turn-of-the-century, wooden pieces, not the plastic type found in 1960s and later sets.
. The pieces in this lot include:Two complete sets of 10-pins, one small, one larger. The larger set, for some reason, has an extra pin
Wooden rings in green, red, and brown. This lot has 11 green rings (and an additional ring painted black), 11 red rings, and 4 brown rings
Carom men/checkers. All, again, are wooden. 15 red checks (two of which look like replacement pieces), 17 brown checks (two different varieties), and 10 black checks
Lastly, Flies and Spider game pieces. This grouping includes: One large red spider, 5 medium sized green flies, and 12 smaller yellow flies. It’s our understanding that the flies and spider game is a variant checkers. The pieces in this lot lack only one yellow piece (or “common fly”) to play the game. These types of game pieces were only produced from 1899 to 1943 for the Crown Combination Board.
Oh yes…one more thing. Also included in this lot is a pair of instruction books from two different Carrom manufacturers. The first book is from the Combinola game from Leonard Manufacturing Company of Grand Rapids, Michigan. We have seen advertisements for the Combinola dated from 1900 to about 1908. This book is in great shape overall, especially considering its age. The rules for 40 different games are listed, including one called “The Transvaal,” based on the Second Boer War (1899-1902). The instructions even suggest playing the game in costume…
The second book is not in great shape, but all of the pages seem to be there. It is from the aforementioned Crown Combination Board. These instructions list over 40 different games with numerous additional variations.
All together, this lot included over 100 antique game pieces and two instruction booklets. It would make a fantastic addition to any old Carrom board.
