Tunbridge Ware Cribbage BoardTunbridge Ware Cribbage BoardTunbridge Ware Cribbage BoardTunbridge Ware Cribbage Board

Tunbridge Ware, sometimes called tunbridgeware, was made in Tunbridge Wells, an English mineral spring spa town in west Kent. The local artisans developed a craft called tessellated mosaic and made wonderful items using different woods to form beautiful inlaid pattern. These were most often sold as souvenirs to tourists who came to the spa in the nineteenth century. This cribbage board measures approximately 9 inches long and 2 ¼ inches wide. It sits on 4 bun feet and has a wooden cover on the bottom that swivels to reveal a round compartment for holding pegs. Unfortunately, there are no pegs. The center pattern is made up of numerous small pieces of wood forming the mosaic pattern. Some of these small pieces are missing. I estimate 25 to 30 missing out of the many hundreds of pieces of wood used for the design. This is a wonderful old collectable and priced according to used condition.
