Spin the dial and your horse race begins! This antique game is in surprisingly good condition considering its age and use. While it has some paint loss and genuine patina, the colors are very appealing and three of the four horses are still racing sound. The fourth horse is missing his/her tail and has a shorter hind end, but nonetheless gamely keeps up with the other three.
The base is lightweight and approximately 6 1/2” square. We suspect this game was designed for four players and came with a game board similar in layout to a roulette wheel, enabling the players to keep score with every spin.
You could easily design a game layout of your own (be creative!), or simply enjoy this otherwise eternal horse race as an interesting desk item, equine decor, conversation piece or simply a cool piece of racing history.
* Please note: we don’t know the composition of metal or paint and this is a somewhat delicate item composed of small metal pieces. Therefore, this game is not suitable for young children.
