What fun to have this vintage Towle pewter shell game set around--perhaps to pull out at cocktail parties, or to use daily around the house, making the loser unload the dishwasher or take out the trash? Plus the pewter walnuts themselves are just great objects, usable as paper weights when not in play:) The set of three shells comes in its original blue box, with cutouts in the cardboard base for each shell -- and a dry kidney bean as well to hide underneath one of them! A terrific gift for the toy collector or game player!
The box measures 6" long x 3 1/4" wide and each walnut measures 1 5/8"long x 1 3/8" wide x 5/8" tall. Great vintage condition (I have not attempted to polish the pewter, but it might shine up a bit more), with just a bit of wear to the box on one side and the bottom.
