Bezique Playing Cards



Vintage Goodall & Son Bezique Playing Cards.
Bezique card game in a red leather covered box with gilt tooling to lid with a key and working lock. The box contains four sets of bezique cards (Ace, 7, 8, 9, 10, Jack, Queen and King) a booklet of the rules and four leather Bezique markers, each a different colour. This wonderful set was made by Charles Goodall & Son, London. Bezique was developed in France and England in the 1860s, certain combinations of cards score various points, and the player with the most points wins. The leather counters each have three 'clock faces' on them with metal arrow pointers. Of the three clocks, one starts at 0 and counts up to 90 in increments of ten, another from 0 to 900 in increments of 100 and the final one again from 0 up to 9000 in increments of 1000.
