Escalado (Red Box) - 1960s


Original red box Escalado with original metal horses, track and all fittings. 

Escalado is a horse racing game created in the United Kingdom in which model race horse game pieces, originally made of lead, would make their way across a long fabric race track towards the finish line at the other end. The horses would move across the race track by means of a mechanical hand crank that vibrated the entire track in a random fashion such that it would simulate the events of a live race.

The horses have flecks of paint missing, just two cosmetic repairs to two of the yellow fence buttons, invisible when the track is laid out and the the box is drawn on but overall the game is complete and in fair, playable condition. Grade 3 under the Hoyles Vintage Grading System.
