My customer has a vintage Carrom table. It is reversible with a pool game on one side and checkers on the other. It has original felt and pool sticks as well as game pieces. It also has legs. The owner wrote to the company ion the 1970s and got updated instructions for it. Does anyone have an idea of the value of this item?
I have found out that it is a Centennial addition and pulled this from the Carrom site:
The rarest of these numbered boards is the Model 190, a fascinating edition that deserves some space here. It was made of very high quality wood in the manner of early 20th century boards, and was called the "Centennial", commemorating the 100th year of Carrom boards in Ludington. Area historians questioned the accuracy of the 1890 date as far as game boards were concerned. This became unimportant since the wood for the playing surface had to be bought from Finland in considerable quantity. Sales projections couldn't justify the cost and the idea was shelved. About twelve editions of this truly unique all-wood board are known to exist.
