Mike Goodall reports that he recently acquired two Charles Goodall & Son items that he was previously unaware of.
One is a leather-covered Whist box, including two packs of Patience cards, and two Tom Thumb markers. Also included was an 1895 Whist for All Players.
That sounds like a great set, and I would think quite scarce.
He also acquired a small-size boxed set for Bridge, Draw-Bridge, and Royal Auction Draw-Bridge. The item acquired by Mike has a red-leather cover, and like the Whist set, it includes two packs of Patience cards. It also includes score-sheet blocks, and of course wooden card-holders for Draw-Bridge (and Royal Auction Draw-Bridge). It also includes two rule booklets.
Mike, congratulations on those finds!
I suppose that one of the reasons I have been absent from this blog is that I have been spending a lot of time on one of my other blogs!
