NOTICE

********NOW OPERATING FROM OUR NEW HEADQUARTERS ********



Now fully operational from the beautiful Pacific North West, we encourage all to keep a close eye as we unpack posted offerings and continue what will be an ongoing effort of unpacking the collection while taking stock with an eye toward thinning out our accumulation of treasures. After years of seeking out and acquiring all manner of quality antique Americana from simple but seldom surviving items of special interest to historically important treasures, Janet and I look forward to offering the fruits of our years of seeking out such to new and appreciative homes.

Originating in Europe well before the 1700s the game of skittles was a mainstay of English pubs well before immigrating to America where the ten-pin version is now considered a forerunner to modern bowling. Popular in ten, nine and four pin versions both as a parlor game where the pins were set-up in diamond fashion on the wood of carpeted floor, the game of skittles was also played out of doors and was popularly played by children as well as adults. Emanating from a history as an English pub or drinking game, by the time of the American Civil War the game was popularly played by common folk and high society alike, indoors and out by children and adults. ( A period example a skittles game had been on display as part of the period memorabilia of the Jefferson Davis, White House of the Confederacy, home section of the old Museum of the Confederacy in Richmond.) This scarce scaled down traveling skittles game is complete with ten turned 6 inch pins and the original ball. Equally appropriate to home, pub or Civil War winter camp, this traveling skittles game offers good evidence of age and period use yet remains pleasing to the eye with its original raw turned hardwood finish and will go well in any quality period grouping. Buy with confidence! We are pleased to offer a no questions asked three day inspection with return as purchased on direct sales! Just send us a courtesy e-mail to let us know your item will be returned per these provisions and your purchase price will be refunded accordingly. Thanks for visiting Gunsight Antiques!
