Behind this is a removable tray with draughts / checkers / backgammon counters in turned Ebony and Boxwood, a cribbage board, some small Di and a full set of bone and Ebony dominoes. this lifts to reveal four sets of playing cards (modern) and this tray in turn lifts to reveal six metal horse and jockey figures for the Ascot game, conical figures for another game, various counters etc.
