A rare 1830 French Fashion Doll Miniature Bezique Playing Card Game Set in a Walnut Shell.
The shell diameter is 1 1/2 inches. The cards are 1 inch by 5/8 of an inch.
All the 32 cards required for Bezique are present and they are in excellent condition. Just one card is darker than the rest and that is the card that was at the front of the pack for 180 years. It would seem the previous owner did not have her friends around too often to play cards.
The walnut shell has no splits or cracks and the hinge and the clasp are in good working order.
A rare and delightful find for your doll's display cabinet. If you wish to find a comparable one you will have to visit the Musee Vendeuvre in France. I was there recently and it was fantastic to see over 700 doll's miniature treasures in the museum. it motivated me to find even more treasures for my lovely doll customers.
