Here is a French Whist card game marker likely to have been made in the early 1900's or late 1800's. The piece has a hollow metal body with spring loaded brass markers. I believe that the top surface of the marker may be silver plated. It shows some pitting from age but otherwise the marker is in excellent condition. Stamped with “ B.E. S.G.D.G.” (French patent mark).
Size is 3 1/4” X 2” X 1/2”.
