This is a vintage dealers box used for the game of Faro. One deck of cards can be loaded at the front and one card at a time can be dispensed by the dealer through a slit on the opposite end. The cards are pushed up to the top by metal springs. Construction is all solid walnut with metal springs, green felt on bottom. Excellent condition. This box will accommodate playing cards that measure no larger than 3 ¼” by 2 1/8” (8.5mm X 5.4mm). Standard U.S. playing cards are slightly smaller measure\ing 3 1/2" X 2 1/4" and will not fit in the box.
