Other information:  fantastic vintage game, this set would appear to come from the 1949 - 1958 period, the horses are unique from other versions in that they are of printed cardboard on wooden bases. These are sometimes called austerity sets (the use of cardboard horses was because of metal shortages following the Second World War). The box and board with turning card pages are similar to the standard pre-war edition except that they are covered in black paper, and the box is a little squarer in shape - may be of some interest to a collector.

Approximate dimensions:    23cm (box length) 17.5cm (box width).

Approximate weight:  1240g.

Price £28.
