I sincerely hope your doll is not addicted to gambling like my doll is! She always loses in the casinos in Monaco and I have to pay her gambling debts . . . That is why I am selling, not keeping this roulette wheel. I can't afford to encourage her . . . The roulette wheel was part of a larger game box. Most of the other items in the box were either stained, corners were torn, etc., but the roulette wheel was perfect, so we bought the set. I would date the game set to the very early 20th Century. The roulette wheel is made of a hard plastic that looks like Bakelite, but it doesn't have the chemical odor of Bakelite. The black and red numbers are lithographed on paper and are in very good antique toy condition. What is amazing is that the little steel ball is still there! It is about five times the size of a bebe. The roulette wheel comes in two parts: the top part with the numbers and the steel ball fit on a steel spindle in the larger dish. It works just fine! The roulette wheel measures 5 3/8" across and stands 1 1/2" tall from the level of the table to the top edge of the outer dish. The last picture of my doll's billiards table. She is in deep enough without adding roulette to her vices. She uses the drawer in the billiards table to stash cards so she can cheat . . .
