Here is a fine set of decorative auction bridge score pads, table numbers and scoring sheets still in their original box, ca. 1926 when auction bridge was so popular. Back then people would set up an elegant table for having a group together for an evening of bridge. They would make sure to have a decorative set of score pads at hand along with any other necessary "essentials." This set of score pads was made by The Henderson Lithographic Company of Cincinnati and known as the Henderson Line. There are three score pads present and should be four. Each pad is decorated with a stylized elegantly dressed lady done in Art Deco style. One of the pads has a cover separation but could easily be reattached with archival adhesive. The pads have been used. Each has some scoring sheets left, but many have been torn out. There are two score cards left in the set that provide the point values for each hand. In addition, there are three of the four table numbers remaining. The box they come in is also in excellent condition with some minor scuffing and soiling. The graphics on each card make this set well worth having because of their Art Deco motif. If you collect game memorabilia you will love these items and if you are into Art Deco they are the epitome of that style. The box measures 5 inches by 7 inches and is about 0.75 inches tall when closed. Although we would not recommend breaking this set up, the pads would be terrific display pieces if nicely framed. Because there are parts missing, this set has been priced to reflect that. Be sure to look at our other inventory of complete sets of auction bridge items.
