Gorgeous antique "skittles" game dating back to the the late 1800's-early 1900's. This game has such primitive appeal. There are countless ways to display this set, and they seem sturdy enough for use (probably best on a carpeted area or rug). The set has a few scratches and dings, but all pins/balls are intact.. There are 8 pins and 2 balls. The pins measure 7" tall by 1.5" wide, the balls 2" across.
