VENETIAN GLASS MARBLE SOLITAIRE GAME
Forget your grotty pack of dog eared Bicycle cards, this version of solitaire is classic, classy and will challenge your cranium in new and exciting ways. The colourful and unique marbles are hand-blown using the age old technique of Murano glass artists and hail straight from Venice. They sit beautifully atop the game board made of solid ebony hard wood.
The earliest evidence of solitaire’s existence was in the court of King Louis XIV well over 300 years ago. That history along with the handcrafted brilliance of this stunning set make for a vintage centre piece perfect for any room in your home.
To play, set up the board with each one of the 37 glass marbles placed in every slot. Remove the marble in middle hole and place it in the outside rim. Now you’re ready to start. The point is to remove each marble off the board and ultimately end with one marble left in the very centre. To remove a marble, you have to leap frog over it using a neighbouring marble. It’ll keep your whole family as well as any visiting guests occupied for ages as you try crack the solitaire puzzle.
Note: This item is a reproduction, carefully constructed by master artisans who employ techniques and traditions that are often centuries old. That means there may be some natural blemishes or imperfections. These are not product flaws, just part of the magic that makes each piece so unique.
