A very rare find and a fantastic collectable for the vintage board and parlour game collector!
Tut-Tut, or A Run in a Motor Car was made circa 1905 and consists of 48 cards, 12 sets of cards, each bearing the name of a British town (London, Leeds, Portsmouth) and a “Point Box” disc spinner that is used to progress through the game. The rules sheet is attached to the lid of the box and the box, although not mint, is in good condition for its age with a couple of tears and some rust where the spinner is attached to the base. Not bad for a game that is 110 years old!
A rare game to find and one that is complete with all its cards – Interestingly, a copy of this game was acquired in 2011 and kept for reference and display in the Osborne Collection at the Toronto Public Library in Canada. The Osborne Collection is a collection of children’s literature up to and includng 1910, and consists of a 14th century manuscript of Aesops Fables, Florence Nightingale’s childhood library and Queen Mary’s children’s books among many other rarities.
A superb antique collectors item!
