Period : Victorian
Origin : Tunbridge Wells; England

Decoration : A narrow eleven-square geometric band set in to the centre of the board, bounded by continuous and banded key-line stringing, and with the pale wood (probably holly) fields separated by further banded spills; the board sits on small turned feet and has a lidded compartment for pegs to the underside

Notes : Cribbage boards were clearly relatively simple items to produce, and ideal for utilising smaller pieces of veneer and left-over stick-ware mosaics; as such, the 'everyday' versions such as this piece were rarely labelled, but the general form of this piece is absolutely consistent with other examples which can be readily identified as having come from the workshops of the Edmund Nye/Thomas Barton lineage.
