Orientalisches Parquetspiel. Jeu de parquet oriental. The play of Oriental inlaid work, n.p., circa 1850, approximately 150 brightly coloured geometrical wooden pieces, four small pieces missing, with original hand-coloured folded pattern sheet (somewhat soiled and torn, laid down), and printed explanation leaf (creased and spotted), contained in original wooden square box with hand-coloured lithograph title label on sliding lid showing three oriental ladies playing a table game, rubbed, 26 x 26cm (10.25 x 10.25ins) Rare. 'In this new mosaic game the form agrees well with the colours; therefore not only the good taste of the children is cultivated by it, but also their mind is impelled to an inventive activity as they are obliged to look for new designs.'
