Condition: Wet Mint
This very rare 1860s Jaques London game board features 16 sequentially numbered hand-painted glazed chinas in pristine condition. The original and mint condition 7″ game board has beautiful grain and a mahogany finish. The Jaques London name and registered seal is stamped into the back. The marbles are all wet mint and range from 5/8″ to 21/32″. The object of the game was to place the marbles so that the marbles in the connecting lines all total the same number when added together. There are 2 versions of this game a 9-marble and a 16-marble version. The 16-marble version is extremely difficult to find and much rarer. Most are incomplete. Definitely a rare treat and must-have acquisition for the serious china collector.
