Set of table markers

<< >>
Description (Brief)
A set of four table markers for bridge. Each one is numbered and each depicts a different bird. All are made of cream celluloid and are hand-painted. "1" is a pelican; "2" is an owl; "3" is a parrot; and "4" is a crow. Each piece has a round clip on the back so the marker can be either clipped to a cup or dish or simply rest upright on the table. The set is unmarked.
