A set of nine vintage Scottish carpet ball pins. This set is crafted of turned hardwood and the pins are individually painted, featuring carved vine designs. Wear is consistent with age and use.

A storied game dating back centuries, carpet ball is similar to bocce ball, though it is typically played indoors in a hallway or on a carpeted surface. The objective of the game is to knock down the pins using a set of balls. Each player has their own set of balls, which are decorated in different colors and designs to differentiate them from one another. This adds an element of strategy and competition to the game, as players can keep track of their progress based on the specific balls they use.

The pins are made of turned hardwood and are individually painted, showcasing the craftsmanship and attention to detail that went into their creation. The carved vine designs add an artistic touch and further enhance their aesthetic appeal. The wear, consistent with age and use, only adds to the pins’ charm and authenticity, reflecting the many games they have likely been a part of over the years.
