More Turned and Painted Wooden Apples - Sold Individually

Regular price $30.00

I've become pretty enamored of these turned and painted wooden apples--made in Japan for the Western market-- which often housed roulette style horse racing games or miniature wooden tea sets, which these likely did, but are now empty.  The earliest examples of these date to the late 19th century, but I would guess these are probably 1940s or so. Terrific gifts for the apple of one's eye--or one's favorite teacher!
