Antique Victorian Carpet Bowls Balls
$90 each
Two 100 year old Victorian carpet balls or more correctly bowls, for a game played and developed during the reign of Queen Victoria, as a form of lawn bowling to be played inside (on the carpet).
The point was to position your bowl (either striped or sponged) closest to a small plain ball while moving your opponent's bowls further away. These carpet balls are made from fired, glazed clay and the design is hand painted. $90 each.

Small nicks to the finish, in good condition.

3.5" diameter.
