This wonderful Bird Cage or Chuck-a-Luck.gambling device is from the 1920s or 1930s -Used in a 1920's-1930's at speak easy during Prohibition for three-dice games such as Chuck-a-Luck or Hazard. Today It can be used with the currently popular game, cee-lo.

Makes a great conversational piece.- The bird cage includes three aged white dice. - The bird cage is made of galvanized metal wire. Supported by a round green Bakelite base and a red Bakelite pole with a yellowish topper with. the metal rod and screw/bolt fixtures

The original handle is missing, but the screw and bolt are in place. The basket turns easily tumbling the dice to the opposite end. The dice are aged and I am pretty sure made of Celluloid and are in good condition

Condition: In very good antique condition -The bird cage has no bent wires and very little rust. The inside is covered with green felt on both sides and is in good shape - Original handle is missing.

Overall: 13-3/4” tall x 6” wide
Cage: 10-1/2” tall x 4 1/2” diameter
Dice: 3/4” x 3/4”
