The box is beautifully lined with red leather and holds the following: a games board in the lid for chess, draughts or checkers and backgammon, a set of bone draughts or checkers, a chess set, a turned box wood dice shaker and six dice and finally a set of ebony and bone dominoes.
The compendium is in excellent condition with a working lock and key and a brass retail plaque for 'H Rodrigues Piccadilly'. (Circa 1870)
