Extremely rare trump marker carved from bone by a french POW into the shape of a hand holding a heart. Circa 1800
I have had a gold bale added so it can be worn as a pendant.
A Trump marker is used when playing whist. Whist is a game which is similar to the modern version of Bridge.
However in Whist the last card dealt determines the Trump suit.
As this was easy to forget Trum markers were invented indicating the current suit for the benefit of the players
Measures - 50mm long and 10mm deep
Good antique condition
