anon: n.t. - Pictorial domino game with animal display
late 19th century
chromolithographed cards, each measures 5,2 x 9 cm. some wear and tear; some light soiling; one card has a slight fold; o/w vg cond.
A very charming and complete domino game, consisting of 30 cards (two more than in a regular set, including three double blanks), with the usual domino numbers on one side, and full colour images of animals (always two "half" animals on one card) that together form an "endless" band of animal pictures, on the other side. The animals depicted are mostly common zoo and farm animals, but also some more unusual ones like an ant-eater, a salamander and a blue heron.
Although with the usual signs of wear and tear, this is still a very good, complete set. Makes a great gift!
