Original Table Top Miniature Croquet Set.
An original parlour game of miniature croquet. The table top croquet set comes on it's original turned mahogany stand and with it's original mahogany box. The set contains 8 mallets with boxwood heads, each having red or blue bands (one to four in each colour). 8 boxwood balls with corresponding coloured bands, two posts (one with numbered red and blue bands), 10 hoops with lead weighted feet and four table clamps that would have webbing attached to stop the balls from rolling off the table. This is a very high quality piece and although there is no makers name it could most probably have been made by either F.H. Ayres or Jaques, because of its quality.

The mallets are 12 inches in length, the mahogany box measures 4' high, 16' wide & 12' deep.

Table Croquet was likely the invention of the Victorians who had a craze for all sorts of parlour games. A whole number of indoor/parlour games were invented, this included miniaturised versions of the popular outdoor games at the time, including bowls and croquet. These games were manufactured by the great games manufacturers of the time such as John Jaques and F. H. Ayres.
