Vintage pygmy playing cards were originally created in the late 19th century by Thomas De la Rue, the man credited with inventing the playing card as we know it. This particular set features two miniature packs of 52 cards, making 104 in total, and the cards are outlined with a fine gold trim.
Our founder, Reginald Waldersmith, was far from an avid gambler, but he was extremely knowledgeable about the industry. He specialised in ‘one armed bandits’, and they were an essential part of the business that eventually became the Games Room Company. After servicing slot machines and jukeboxes on American airbases during the war, the resultant friendships Reginald made in the US armed forces allowed him to begin shipping them to the UK, and begin trading as the Games Room Company.
We’ve been selling games tables since 1962, so we know a thing or two about our products! Our showroom will gladly assist you on any questions you may have before or after you purchase any Games Room Company equipment.
