Description

Wonderful Green Stained Shagreen Card Box adorned with applied ornate silver in all four corners. Central to the Shagreen card box is the word “Bridge” for the famous card game Bridge, again in sterling silver. Opening the card box reveals its solid Oak structure, with two packs of playing cards, score papers and its original key.

The game Bridge was derived from the 17th-century card game Whist, which was in vogue among the English nobility of the time. In whist, four players (who comprise two partnerships) are each dealt 13 cards from a 52-card deck, with a partnership’s objective being to win as many tricks* as possible.

All the silver on the Shagreen Card box is fully hallmarked for Birmingham, 1905 by James Thornton.

Antique Bridge Shagreen Card Box has a fully working lock and key.
