Product Description

This is another great item being offered, it is a cased set of Civil War era dominos cased, circa 1840's-1860's. This is in its original period sliding-top, dove tail box, which measures 7 1/2" x 2 1/2" x 1 3/4". Inside are 28 ivory/bone and ebony dominos, with the period correct brass pins. Next to playing cards, dominos were the most popular game played by Civil War soldiers. Evidence of this can be seen in the finding of dominos left in camps and other Civil War sites. There is also a near identical example in The Gettysburg National Battlefield Museum.

Also, in my book "The Civil War Soldier - His Personal Items", I have a similar set of dominos pictured and discuss in further detail the games that soldiers played (see pictures). This is an absolutely beautiful period set and worthy of the finest Civil War collection.
