This is a rare and original '9 Spot' Dominoe game of 55 individual dominoes, coming complete with its jointed wooden box or case.


Dominoe sets are normally six-spot sets giving a total of 28 dominoes. This set is much rarer, having a full nine-spot set of 55 individual dominoes, making this classic strategy game much more interesting to play.


The dominoes are quite heavy and individually handmade, with an upper half made of bone ( probably bovine) and a lower half made of a black material, probably ebonised wood, with the halves riveted together with three metal rivets. The dimensions of each dominoe are nominally; Measures: 4.5cm long, 2.1cm wide, 0.8cm deep (thickness) The case is well made of wood, possibly beach, jointed at either end and with a sliding lid.


We consider this to be the original case to the game. We date this game to the late Victorian period,

circa 1890.
