Wheeling: A Game for cyclists - 1890s
One of the old all-time classic English games. The game represents a race from London to the Anchor's pub at Ripley (which still exists!). Made in England by J. Jaques & Son of London. A wonderful game with great period artwork.
What is unusual about this particular copy is usually the game has four lead bicycles but this version has four hand painted card playing pieces instead and it includes two metal dice and a shaker.
Grade 1 under the Hoyle's Vintage Grading System (see here).
