With this impressive bit of furniture, you are set for a poker night. The 12" x 10" 2 3/4" high box is all walnut, made by Consider H. Willett Inc. of Louisville, Kentucky. The furniture company was founded in 1934 by Consider and his brother W.R., and was a high end furniture maker from founding until closure in 1962. There is a minor bit of damage on the lid, but since Consider H. Willett furniture is quite collectable I would not recommend refinishing the piece, because that would devalue it for collectors. Inside the box are red, white and blue poker chips; what we call clay chips are actually a mixture of clay and other materials (the solid clay chips from the early 1800's broke too easily). What is used in their construction is something similar to cat litter, according to one author. The two playing card decks inside are from the Peppermill and the Hilton. The Hilton deck has a little hole through the middle of the entire deck to show it has been used, and the Peppermill deck has a sticker on it that reads: "This Deck of Cards was Used in Actual Play in This Fabulous Casino." Add this impressive set to your card playing evenings and enjoy the feeling of being part of a long history.
