  • Billiards scoreboard 0-24

    Hi guys I'm hoping someone can help me find out some info on a scoreboard I've seen. It only scores from zero to 24 and I'm puzzled as to what type of billiard game it's for? Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

                Some pics of the scoreboard below which is for billiards, twenty-four being the standard game in the early part of the 19th century (1800-1820). This scoreboard is a rare survivor from that period. Probably narrow the date down a bit further as Thurston were not at this address until 1814, but almost certainly one of their earliest items.

                    I can narrow that date. The scoreboard references "Appointment to Her Majesty " The vendor assumes this is Victoria, but it actually refers to a warrant issued by Queen Charlotte who was consort to George III. As she died in 1818, the board would not be later than this.
