Bezique counter made by United States Playing Card Co., called by USPC a "Scorer for Bezique and Rubicon Bezique." There is nothing to indicate a date, but USPC made its "No. 87 Bezique" brand c.1899, [see, Dawson/Hochman, p.104, US41] and I have assumed that the "Scorer" was made to be sold with that brand of cards. Rubicon bezique came into popularity in the 1880s, and so that date makes historical sense as well. It is the 3-wheel type commonly found in British bezique sets, made of a strong cardboard/paperboard substance, and on the back is a scoring chart. It is the size of a wide playing card, measuring 92mm by 63mm.

The "Scorer" is in what I would describe as very good condition, with signs of age and wear, but no serious issues. The metal arrows on the wheels work as intended. I have never seen a USPC bezique counter before, and believe that this is a rare item.

Thanks for visiting.
