1906 CREAM POTTERY CRIBBAGE BOARD
A good example of a creamware, pottery cribbage board made in the famous potteries of Staffordshire. It measures 23 x 12 x 2cm deep and ha a relief lines around the peg holes as well as relief flowers and the four card suits to the centre of the piece. To the underside has been scratched (before firing) the name of the maker John Huntbatch and the town, Burslem as well as the date, May 12th 1906. The potter probably made this for use with his own family as an extra-curricula piece. No cracks or chips. Just the normal marks where the wires would have guided the piece in and out of the fire. Good authentic piece. I have a selection of pegs - some sets, some near matching in bone and other materials is you also need a set for the board.
