TOP QUALITY ARMORIAL BOX AND FULL SET COUNTERS (L2)             £ 8500
This is a unique opportunity to own a FULL set of 140 armorial counters in the original lacquer box - all in museum display quality. The box itself has bright gilding and superb artwork, is raised on lion'spaw feet and contains a full set of trays. The counters are in the large top-quality size and all bear the family crest of a fleur-de-lys with the monogram R & JCB (possibly R & HC). This was made for one of several possible families - Barnett,  Blizard, Borough, Boutfleur or Burgess. The counters have the vine-and-moth border and the box and counters were produced in around 1820. It even still has a publicity calendar for the year 1896 for Grant Brothers of New Brunswick - so it has spect some of its life in Canada. It is exceptionally rare to find a box in such superb condition which still contains all the 140 original armorial gaming counters.
