Product Description

A quite charming set of garden skittles and balls…

Although we are unsure of the exact age of these pieces, we would suggest they date to the early part of the 20th century, if not earlier. The nine skittles and two balls are turned in wood and feature metal braces at the base of each piece. Standing approximately 37cm tall, the skittles could continue to be used as a garden game or would look ace on a shelf or sideboard at home on display. The skittles ooze quality and are elegant on the eye. These also wouldn’t look out of place in a museum too…

We love the look of these…! Original, hand carved and showing their age and usage. They retain a great shape and patina and of course it’s awesome to the see the original centre skittle with it’s raised top. They are quite weighty, therefore these will last for many years to come and create many fun afternoons in the sun…

We are offering these pieces in ‘as found’ condition, therefore there is some natural wear and tear. Structurally the pieces are in good shape. There are some surface scuffs and abrasions across the entire pieces, along with some tatty and dirty areas. We feel the current condition simply adds to their charm and authenticity. Please do study the photos to help with your analysis as it would be hard to highlight all imperfections…

Please note : We have only wiped the surface of these pieces, therefore we think with a good deep clean, these would transform in appearance
