This is a great vintage item - a wooden poker chip holder with 191 Bakelite poker chips. I'm not certain of the wood, but it looks like pecan. I've tested the chips with Simichrome and they test positive as Bakelite. I love the feel of Bakelite, an old plastic produced in the first half of the twentieth century, and the sound of the chips clicking together.
These are getting harder to find, as industrious jewelry dealers are creating Bakelite jewelry with the colorful chips.
There are 47 red, 49 yellow and 95 dark green poker chips in all. The caddy is 7 3/4 inches in diameter and 4 1/4 inches tall. It has a handle and two slots for card decks. Condition is excellent.
Make your next poker night a memorable one!
