BILBOQUET (CUP & BALL) TOY- VR 1887 JUBILEE - QUEEN VICTORIA'S GOLDEN JUBILEE

This wooden bilboquet or cup and ball, is lovely memento of Queen Victoria's Golden Jubilee in 1887 that the children of the day would have played with in celebration. Made of what looks to be Beechwood. It measures 9" or 23cms from the handle end to the top of the ball when in the cup and is inscribed with the initials' VR' for Victoria Regina on one side of the cup and 'Jubilee' on the other. The ball is attached to the handle by what appears to be the original string where it is looped in a turned groove. The end or finial is finished off nicely in an ornamental boss which appear to be silver. A super toy, co-ordinating hand and eye, which has been much loved and played with over the years and which can will probably stand another 125 years of use
