A very nice Bone Prisoner of War Domino Box. The top of the box has a Lady with a Young Man. The sides have sailing ships done in black ink. Most likely her husband has gone a long voyage. The top slides off and there is a full set of 32 Bone Dominoes. The bottom of the box is wood. These items were made by Napoleonic Prisoners of War who were held Captive in England from their Soup Bones and sold so they could buy extra food and brandy.

In very good condition, with the exception of some wear to the black ink on the sides.

Measures approximately, 4 ¾” x 2 ½” x 3 ½” tall.

This dates to around 1810 and are increasingly harder to find.
