An early 20th century set of 9 large French skittles, also known as 'Jeu de Quilles' or Nine-Pin Skittles. They are made of turned wood, probably beech, and are attractively painted. They have metal tips, but these are missing from a couple. The set is complete with its original wooden ball. These skittles have been well used and show some wear as a result, but this adds to their appeal.

Condition: original condition commensurate with the age of the set, with some chips, splits and general wear.


  • H: 33.5cm (13.19in)
  • W: 4cm (1.57in)

Welcome to Ginger Tom's Curious Eclectic.  We are a husband and wife team, both with a lifelong interest in antiques. Our business stems from the usual collector turned dealer scenario.  As our own collections grew, it became obvious we needed to redistribute some items in order to make space to buy new treasures to feed our own habit.

Buying to sell seemed the natural progression from this. We have been involved in buying and selling since 2004, but have only recently taken the decision to establish an online presence. We don't specialise in any particular area, but our interests do influence our stock purchases to a degree.

Our stock includes a varied mix of unusual antique, interesting vintage and stylish contemporary objects that would suit many different settings. Our key criteria is that we only buy, and therefore only sell, items that we would have in our own home and believe that if we like something, others will too.

Our opening hours are 9.30am to 5.30pm, Monday to Friday.
