: SOLD : French Art Deco Skittle Set
A very rare and collectable French art deco toy skittle set, c1920s - 1930s. This is a full set with nine skittles and ball.
Beautiful handmade wooden skittles, they have been hand-painted as little toy soldiers, in quintessential French colours! The soldiers also feature painted gold helmets.
They were found at the weekend brocante market in Carpentras with their original tag still attached and a piece of newspaper from 1938 inside the set. They are in excellent condition, and were possibly never used.
These will look lovely as an interesting decoration on a shelf or mantle, and would be a real talking point!
Each skittle stands 13cm tall.
