Contact Seller Woodys Antiques ▼ A simple Edwardian version of the classic skittle game 'Devil among the Tailors'. The walnut gave the piece an intense richness which worked very beautifully with the brass foot rail. It's more that playing the game in a quiet bar can cause quite a disturbance as the pins rattle down onto hard wood, so padding like that shown above is often desirable if not essential.

The London tailors took exception to this satire on their craft, and thousands rioted, both inside and outside the theatre.

Beautifully made by Benchmark and designed by aberrant architecture, these playful tables were a highlight of the exhibition. The 18 th-century game is different from today’s version that is still around in some pubs in Britain. Ideal for a study or a spacious library, this Skittles and Top game table is not only a challenging and engaging pastime but also a striking decorative piece.

Two pub tables in American cherry and maple and American walnut and ash were created for the Wallpaper* Handmade Exhibition at Milan Design Week 2012.Personalized advertising may be considered a “sale” or “sharing” of information under California and other state privacy laws, and you may have a right to opt out. And at the end of the working day, the drawer can be removed and lifted onto the table surface, the skittle-shaped office organisers arranged into place and the brass ball and chain hooked onto the light to enjoy an impromptu game of Devil amongst the Tailors with friends, colleagues or fellow pub-goers. For all other auctions: Lots will be moved to an offsite storage location (Cadogan Tate, Auction House Services, 241 Acton Lane, London NW10 7NP, UK) and will only be available for collection from this location at the date stated in the catalogue. Additionally, the tailor himself was seen as grasping for money – without doubt men of fashion often were in debt to the men bringing them out in latest fashion, and disliked it immensely when a tailor sent them dunning letters. The tiny pins are the same size or even smaller than Daddlums but a strong distinguishing feature seems to be the cheeses which are made from layers of leather rivetted together.
