A very nice, Tartan Ware game counter. C.1900. This game counter is 3 3/4 inches by 2 1/2 inches and sits 1/4 inch high. On the top end of this game counter there is a area for the two pegs, (which are missing) to be kept. There is a very clever small brass swivel lock to hold the pegs in place. Each person playing the game would have their own game counter. This tartan counter would be a lovely addition to a collect and could be used with ‘borrowed’ pegs.
