VINTAGE OLD MAID CARD GAME - CHAD VALLEY C. 1940s
Old Maid card game by Chad Valley games made at their factory Harborne, England.
In the original box measuring 10 x 7.5 x 2 cms deep the cards seem hardly to have been played with. The box has wear commensurate with age, but there are no splits or tears to the box and the cards are without creases or damage.
Rules are shown in the third image. One left with the Old Maid card is declared, "The Old Maid" . A tad non-u in this modern age, but a momento of a by-gone age. The graphics of the pairs of spouses taken from various trades and professions are priceless. I particularly like Mrs. Howlynn, The Singer's Wife who's dog is doing his own heartfelt howling! Mr and Mrs Slapdash the Artist and his wife are also very amusingly drawn.
