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 it does utilise a geometric band which is all but identical to that used on a pin-hinged handkerchief box which can be readily identified as having come from the workshops of the Edmund Nye/Thomas Barton lineage.
