An English circa 1870, boxed mahogany squails game. It is all original, containing 16 discs, a procese and swoggle. This was a popular Victorian era table game. It is rare to find the complete game and contents. Henry Whitmore Jones (1837–1874) invented Squails and its vocabulary of eccentric terms. The game involves two teams of players who take turns flicking small wooden discs (squails) towards the jack (procese). The distance between the discs and the jack is measured by a ‘swoggle’, and the team with its discs closest to the jack wins the game. Maker is likely John Jacques & Son, London,
