Description

A pair of 1800s skittle balls carved in Lignum Vitae. These hail from the skittle alley of a C16th Devon pub and despite Lignum Vitae's immense density they bear pocks and dents testament to many nights' play. They are now "flatted" to prevent rolling and they make superb door stops.

Stock No. 1944
