Handmade Dominoes of White Acrylic Double 9 with Red White and Blue Trays

These dominoes were handmade by my 90-year-old dad in his little workshop behind my parents' home.

Dad purchased the acrylic locally in southeast Iowa. Then he spent hours and hours cutting, sanding, and finishing each little piece. He cut the center groove and drilled he tiny holes. I can't even imagine how much time he spent on this set of 55 pieces! My mother, the more particular one of the pair, painstakingly painted each little red dot . I like knowing that they were lovingly created by someone who had to keep busy, even in retirement.

Although Daddy could make great dominoes, he was not particularly good at making boxes. He made this white acrylic box w/ clear sliding lid to hold the playing pieces as well as the 4 trays to hold the pieces during the game. The clear lid has some scuffs as you can probably detect in image 4. Nevertheless, since he made the box for this set it will stay with it. Let me know if you would prefer a leather bag to hold everything. I can include one for an extra $15.00.

My mother typed up instructions on her old black manual Underwood typewriter. I will include a copy with your set.

Images were taken outside; there is some reflection from tree leaves, etc., in the photos.

Dominoes is a time-honored game and good for all ages. Great item for the cabin or lakehouse. Dominoes makes a wonderful and educational gift for any age or gender!

(Our loyal assistant, Woody, says this set is 'meow-velous'!)
