This vintage Put and Take Dice Bar or Pub game features 2 yellow butterscotch Bakelite or Catalin square dice. One die has either a P (black) or a T (red) on each side. The other die has either a 1, 2, 3, 4, (numbers in black) or A (red) on each side. Please note: the "3" number appears blue in the photos. It is black. I do not know why it looks blue.

The dice measure 9/16" cubed (1.5 cm).

These Put and Take dice are in great condition. There are a few minor scratches/scuffs. The number die is slightly darker. 

This popular gambling dice game is fun to play or collect!


How to play 'Put & Take' with two 6-sided dice

Number of players: any number
All players contribute an equal amount of chips to the pot. 
The first player then rolls the 2 Put & Take dice.

This crackle agate slice necklace features dyed multi colored agate slices that are rough cut. The necklace is long and chunky with the agate slices strung in graduated order. The gemstones are capped with Sterling silver bead caps with multi-colored, coordinated beads strung in between. A Sterling silver lobster claw clasp finishes this statement necklace.

The agates are dyed but still show striations, stripes, inclusions, and some drusy (crystals). The colors are bright and vibrant, including turquoise blue, fuchsia pink, golden topaz, kelly green, black, and light blue.

These gemstone slices are rough cut, so some stones might have uneven cut marks, natural flaws, and nicks.

The necklace measures 25 1/2" long. It is heavy and not for the faint of heart!

A stunning colorful necklace that will turn heads and set you apart for your fabulous ability to accessorize.

This Portieux Vallerysthal blue opaline candy dish features the grape & vine pattern. It is lidded and footed. This pretty jar was made in France and has great detail.

It stands about 6" tall to the top of the grape cluster knob on top of the lid. It is 4" in diameter across the opening of the jar.

This Portieux Vallerysthal candy dish / jar is in very good condition. There is one small chip on the inside of the inner lip that is hard to see, but can be felt with your finger. See the last photo. It needs cleaning, as there is some residue around the design.

The blue opaline glass is very heavy and sturdy and will be functional for years to come.

A great addition to your vintage Portieux Vallerysthal collection or your Robin's egg blue glass collection.

A really unusual and fun silver charm bracelet to wear or repurpose.

This vintage glass lamp shade features Art Deco style etched, frosted, design in a beautiful chartreuse yellow color. It is made to look like Cameo Glass. This lamp shade has a nice fluted trumpet shape that is paneled and pinched into a hexagon. The design is textured, or cut away from the clear frosted background.

This lamp shade "globe" measures 6 1/8" tall x 2 3/16" in diameter across the base (the part that goes into the lamp fixture) x 4 3/16" in diameter across the opening.

It is in excellent condition. There are a few small chips along the base that will not show when attached to a lamp. There are no cracks. There are a few bubbles in the glass.

An excellent faux Cameo Glass art deco style lamp shade for a pendant light or desk lamp. It also looks really pretty placed over a tea light or votive candle.

This vintage brooch features painted flowers on top of a butterfly wing. The flowers and wing are under a domed glass cabochon and set in a Sterling silver bezel setting. The brooch is oval and edged in Sterling silver filigree.

The wing is light brown in color and hard to capture in the photos. The overlapping wing scales can be seen with a magnifying glass or jewelers loupe. It has a light orange and blue/teal iridescence. The flowers appear to be painted on the wing, and not on the glass dome.

The brooch measures 1 1/8" (2.9 cm) wide and 1" (2.5 cm) tall. It has a standard roll over clasp which is in full working order.

The back of the butterfly brooch is stamped Sterling.

This pin is in very good condition. I did not attempt to clean it. There is residue along the bezel and in the filigree that appears to be dried silver polish.

An amazing piece to add to your butterfly wing jewelry collection or to wear as an accessory that will brighten your day!

These gorgeous rhinestone earrings are clip on style and are reminiscent of angels. They amber/topaz tear drop and gray marquis and round shaped rhinestones that are super sparkly. The rhinestones are arranged on top of large yellow art glass briolette drops.

The yellow art glass has some "slag" stripes where the color was uneven in the glass. the rhinestones are prong set in brass toned settings.

The clip on backs are unsigned marked.

They measure about 1 1/2” long and 1” wide.

The vintage rhinestone earrings are in good condition. They have wear (chips, a little corrosion and color loss) on the clips. They have not been cleaned. The tip of one of the yellow art glass drops is chipped, but it's not noticeable since it's hidden behind the rhinestones.

So pretty for that special occasion, for your collection of rhinestone jewelry, or to repurpose into a new design.

This vintage brooch features pink or dusty rose givre and pillowcase art glass cabochons that are prong set into gold toned settings. This brooch is very similar to those made by D&E or Juliana. It is unsigned. A lot of their jewelry is unsigned, so this may very well be one of theirs.

The givre stones are teardrop and round shaped that have injected color in either clear or opaque glass. The round stones resembles moonstone with a milky pastel iridescence. There are 2 focal pillowcase glass cabochons in the center that have a streak of pink against a frosty white background. This whole brooch is so shimmery and has astounding depth.

The shape of the brooch is diamond/oval. It measures 2 1/2" long x 1 7/8" wide. It has a solid gold toned back with an affixed roll over style pin clasp. The clasp is in full working order.

This vintage givre art glass brooch is in excellent to mint condition. I have not cleaned it.

A stunning brooch to wear in the spring or add to your vintage estate jewelry collection.
