Faro Dealing Box

   Posted by: CaptYak    in Collectibles

Back in the “Old West” days the most popular game played in the Saloons and Gambling Houses was “Faro“. This was the game of choice for Wyatt Earp, Bat Masterson and Luke Short, just to name a few. I could easily add that it was popular with most Professional Gamblers.

To play the game you needed a deck of cards and a layout at the very least. You could enhance the game with a Case Keeper and a Dealing Box, like the one pictured to the right.

This particular dealing box was made by the well know company, Mason & Co. out of Chicago. It is made of German Silver, also known as Nickel Silver. Many of these boxes were gaffed (rigged to cheat), this box isn’t.

Modern boxes made today are made of brass not German Silver otherwise the modern boxes look and operate the same as the original boxes.

You will find this particular box and one that isn’t “marked” for sale at Old West Antiques. Stop by and check them out along with Faro Layouts and Case Keepers.
