Games people play - Bezique

This is such a dinky little thing - a counter to keep score when playing the old French card game, Bezique.  I have absolutely no idea how to play Bezique, but snapped this up at a local brocante - now sold.

The little metal flaps flip over to reveal the score - you can just see the numbers impressed into the wood.  It does need a gentle polish to enhance the wood - mahogony I think, but not too much as it does have a great patina.  As rare as hen's teeth - they are usually cardboard, or have metal sliders, but not the little flaps.

I love it - and if you love it too, it is for sale here.
