Northamptonshire Skittles. Rare Small Size Original Table.
An original Northamptonshire Skittles table, complete with pins and cheeses.
Traditionally played in pubs, and also known as Hood Skittles, this game comes with three cheeses, and 9 pins. The cheeses are thrown at the pins and bounce off the cushioned leather sides, whilst the hood prevents the cheese from flying about the pub.
These cheeses are made from rosewood.
Dated underneath: 1912.
These tables are usually larger, and it is very rare to find one in this smaller size.
This is thought to be an apprentice piece or a salesman’s piece.
