19th century fruitwood cup & cover ‘magical’ trick game. Turned with domed foot to baluster turned stem to ribbed ball with turned finial. When the lid is removed a grey ball is revealed. But it can be devious and a sleight of hand also reveals a red or a white ball, but only if you now how…
Difficult to date but probably English, circa 1800.
