Goodall Chinese bezique set. 1935
Lovely thick leather case with "Fortnum & Mason" the retailers name, embossed in gilt inside the lid flap. With a hallmarked silver clasp it was an expensive item in its day. Cards have never been used and the wonderful green leather colour it would have looked originally can still be seen when the box is opened, complete with satin covered rule book and two wooden counters. There are Six packs of gilt edged cards 32 + 1, five tax wrapped and one only opened to scan. Very hard to find six pack bezique sets of this quality and in this condition today. Six pack "Chinese" bezique was said to be Churchill's favourite card game.
