PHOTOGRAPHS OF EARLY 20TH CENTURY GAMING TABLES

A group of 15 black-and-white photographs of gaming tables produced by Mason & Co., which at one time was the nation’s largest producer of gambling equipment. Several of these 8” x 10” images are stamped with a Newark, New Jersey address on the verso, dating the images to pre-1935 when the company consolidated its operations and moved them to Chicago. The company was founded in the late 1800s as Geo. Mason & Co. and initially produced ornate roulette wheels.

According to a handwritten note on the back of one of the photographs, the images in this group show the new standard carved library equipment. There are a variety of mahogany tables for playing roulette and craps. One of the images in the group has been mocked up to show it in a residential setting, perhaps for a catalog.

Along with the photographs, this group includes four brochures about gambling: Harrah’s Club Lake Tahoe Gaming Guide, 1955; Roland Hill’s In Las Vegas I Recommend: Where to Go, Stop, Eat, Play and Shop, 1950; Joe W. Brown’s Horseshoe Club Souvenir Gaming Guide, 1954; and Eldorado Club Souvenir Gaming Guide, circa 1950. Item #74710

Price: $450.00
