A very attractive French game called "Jeu du Nain-Jaune" or "Game of the Yellow Dwarf". It was made in Paris by Simonin Cuny Co in the 1920s/30s. It comes in the original wooden box with slide lid. Inside is a tray - this is the game board and it contains 5 removeable dishes, each with an attractive image pasted into the bottom, matching the decoration on the game board. Below this are 7 wooden boxes, two with lids, containing lots of assorted gaming chips in various sizes, colours and shapes. There is also an incomplete deck of cards. One of the wooden trays is missing. The rules for playing the game are pasted (in French) onto the back of the box lid.
This is a very decorative game. It could still be played with the addition of a complete deck of cards.

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.
