Museum classification:
Working Tools
Size:
55 x 60 cm
Information:

A table, possibly dating to the 1930s, hand-painted black all over with white and red lettering.  The table surface contains the usual elements found in modern Ouija boards including the 'Yes' and 'No' answers, the alphabet, and the numbers 0 to 9.  More unusual is the inclusion of points of the compass on both the table top and sides.

From a brick-a-brack sale in St. Just, Cornwall, 2016.
