Table Skittles, also known as 'Bar Skittles' or 'Devil Amongst The Tailors' is a classic family and pub game, believed to have originated in the 18th Century.
This vintage Table Skittles set dates from the early 1960's. It is a high-quality, full-size 'league' table, not the smaller version that is often produced nowadays. Skittle tables of this vintage are much more substantial and durable than modern versions.
The table has a 2-piece demountable pole which screws together with a brass screw fitting. It also has built in storage for the wooden skittles. The hinged lid also contains a scoring track.
Also known as 'Devil Amongst The Tailors', this game is a test of dexterity and skill. It can be played by any number of players.
The game is complete and in very good condition throughout.
