These divine antique c. 1870s French mother of pearl gaming pieces are from a large lot acquired in France.
The etched pieces have gorgeous shades of reds, pinks and purples. The colors are truly striking in person. Their design has been so deftly done it makes the quality of these antique game pieces outstanding! One side has "1000 FRANCS" etched with gilt, the other has gorgeous gilt etched monograms.
They measure 2-13/16" wide by 1-1/2" tall, and in superb condition. You may find small discrepancies in the etching because they were made by hand. Some small chips on the edges.
