A perfect counterpoint to the delicate sets of antique bone spillikins I also love--this wonderfully chunky old set of wooden jackstraws, complete with hook that is nothing more than a stick with bent nail at the end, which I must say does the trick perfectly! Plus a note in the box noting that they were made--and, importantly, played with!--by a Rollin R (I believe it reads). Really great, and excellent to play with, with a nice weight that makes both tossing them and extracting pieces very satisfying. I especially love the two super chunky oar shaped pieces.
Jackstraws are in great condition and about 4 1/4" long. Box measures 4" tall x 1 5/8" wide and deep. Note of course included! I'd guess maybe 1930s or 40s.
