Luck on my side - more vintage dominoes!




I've definitely got luck on my side this week as I found yet another beautiful set of vintage picture dominoes in my local Oxfam here in Totnes. I've got this in two other versions but was thrilled to find this one as I love it's box. (Now I sound really geeky!) It's made in Germany and dates from the 50s or 60s.

Hey don't feel geeky about liking the box - if it didn't look so good you wouldn't have found the treasures contained within. Let's hear it for boxes... hurrah!

you have introduced me to a type of design I never knew I even liked. Thanks! These dominoes are amazing and I probably would have walked by them without looking. Not anymore!!
