Interesting Group of Eight Antique Hand Painted Game CountersInteresting Group of Eight Antique Hand Painted Game Counters

This is an unusual set of 19th century game counters.
They are made of bone, and hand painted on both sides with overlaying playing cards, one side with diamonds as the main card and the other with hearts.
I am not sure what game they would have been used for, but in the 19th century they were great game players, and many of the games are somewhat obscure.
The background of the counters is gilded, and the edge is raised.

Condition: Very good.

Size: Slightly over 1 inch across.
