French Painted Pewter Mechanical Horse Racing Polo Game

Ref: D2817

This is a fascinating early gambling roulette game with four painted horses on a single track carousel with the riders holding polo mallets and is operated via a lever to the front of the base unit. It is thought that four players would bet on which horse would be first to pass the finishing post. Originally it would have had a travel cover.
