This is an early dice gambling machine from around 1920 manufactured by Charles Fey & Son. Charles Fey is know as the inventor of the slot machine but he also manufactured a variety of other type of gambling machines. Many of his designs were later copied by other companies.
This Midget dice machine has the “Fey & Co.” logo on the inside castings on the side, front piece, and the bottom of the spinner table. It has the 1920's Art Deco style exterior with the lady head on the side panels and the small Indian head just above the last coin played viewing window.
The game is played by inserting a nickel and pushing the plunger. The six dice roll around for awhile and when they stop you count the pips. The payout card at the top will tell you if and how much you win, payoffs were probably made in trade for cigars or merchandise at the store.
The payout card and the card at the front are copies of originals. The felt on the dice table and probably the dice themselves have been replaced. The lock on the back door has been replaced with an original style lock. Everything else on the machine is original. The outer case has been polished and it is in excellent working condition.
Size is 10” X 8” X 7 1/2”.
