VINTAGE AMERICANA PIGS IN CLOVER
FARM BOARD GAME R. JOURNET & Co. LONDON
This sale is for a
very old board game of Pigs in Clover – with instructions printed on the
outside of the cover lid. The lid has
patina from age, rubbing on corners, lifting of paper in a few areas, and has
been tapped on the inside of the lid in several spaces. Artwork graphics looks great and has a
classic drawing of a boy chasing pigs that have escaped the pin. The box bottom is the circular board with
five wooden balls that are the pigs and a center cave that is the pig pin! Bottom is made from wood and side rail has
two tears but is still functional and looks great. Very unusually shaped game and very neat design
make this a fun game to display.
This game became a fad in 1899.
