late 19th Century Ivory Backgammon Set w/ a Leather Case by “Roberts of S.F.”
late 19th Century Ivory Backgammon Set w/ a 20th C. Leather Case by “Roberts of S.F.”. The case is w/o blemishes to the leather, but the brass buckles could use a polish. There are 15 [natch] blots of each color / red + white. The blots have a good weight, just over 1/4 of an ounce each or 8 grams. They measure 1 3/8 inches wide and they are 1/4 of an inch thick. A really nice “feel” in your hand. The case closed is 14 1/2 inches x 9 3/4 inches. There are no regular dice but there are 2 doubling cubes of a modern make / brown and white.
