I found these interesting dominoes laid out on a game table at Bulloch Hall. Not sure if these are ebony and bone that would have been the mark of a finely made game set or some kind of reproduction like bakelite. Looking at the surface of the pieces, I would tend to think that these are the real thing.
One of the most intriguing parts about this set are the raised pins in the middle of the domino. I assume this is to allow them to be easily stacked but it’s something that I had not seen before. Once again, the world up-close is always showing me new things!
