SUPERB & UNUSUAL WOODEN SOLITAIRE BOARD AND PEGS Circa 2000
Measuring 23 circumference and 5 cms tall this intricately hand-turned, heavy wooden SOLITAIRE BOARDS has been made from a solid piece of beautifully figured wood. Likewise all the pegs are individually turned from different wood specimens. The entre piece (King pin) is a different shape from the other 32 piece and is elegantly turned from a piece of lignum vitae.
Each peg is numbered to the underside of the peg and also along the stem. Why, I am not sure. Perhaps there was a leaflet that went with it which had the numbers corresponding to wood type. See photo number four.
Attention to detail has been great and the board sits on three turned feet, which elevates the board to a nice height.
Probably made any time around 2000 and in a very limited edition I suspect.
Elegant, modern, useful. A wedding, anniversary or birthday present?
