A sailer of POW dice box with 6 small dice, Early 19th century.

A very rare box in the form of a large dice containing six smaller dice, probably made by a sailor or a Napoleonic prisoner of war. The box is made of bone constructed of six panels which are held together by tiny bone pegs and a sliding lid. Each panel is decorated with an engraved and hand-colored image of a King, Queen, Jack, Ace and Nine of Spades and a Ten of Hearts, possibly added as a symbol of love.

English or French. Early 19th century.

Dimensions: 3,7cm x 3,7cm x 3,7cm
