English Fairground Target

Without doubt this is one of the best examples we have seen and is rare in this form due to its fully working mechanism.

Description

We are proud to offer a rare scratch built English fairground shooting target game. A fully working example showing lots of character, the game functions with the customer shooting a pellet at the target. Each section of the cast metal target has spring loaded rings, from the outside to the bull’s eye. If the customer hits any individual ring a cast metal number drops down at the bottom to display the points scored. The mechanism is spring loaded and therefore the game can be reset by pulling the toggle rope to the right hands side of the box. This item is encased in a hand-crafted pine wooden box and is covered with a wonderful aged, cracked green paint and natural patina. The air riffle is also included in this sale and is fully working.

What Our Customers Say

It was a pleasure to work with the House of Antiques on a recent project at the London Dungeon.

I was after antiques and oddities of a macabre, arcane nature and Harry’s stand-out selection – from human bones in glass jars to contorted wax heads – was exactly what I had in mind but couldn’t seem to find anywhere else. Harry himself made the whole process extremely personal and is really invested in each item he has collected, ensuring not only it is right for the project being undertook, but that the products are shipped safely and delivered on time.

I would not hesitate to recommend the House of Antiques to anyone, thanks for a straight-forward (and v cool) experience!
