Poker Face?

December 17, 2009

Our Now or Never Sale today is really special, and if you’re in the market for a totally unique gift for a loved one or yourself, you’re in luck! Designer Rachelle Epstein came upon a collection of antique poker/casino chips and knew that they were the perfect inspiration for one-of-a-kind accessories.

The mother-of-pearl chips are casino chips used around 1900 (before plastics) in European and South American Casinos. Some are from Vichy, France and others are from a casino/spa in Belgium called L’ Etrangier (the Foreigner), supposedly frequented by F. Scott Fitzgerald. All of these chips are extremely rare.

The others are clay composite American poker chips also from the 1900’s from different (illegal & legal) clubs used for different versions of poker games. After plastics were invented, these went by the by, and many are very rare including the cupid on a bike and the “kissing” owls.

Plus, all of these pieces have a built-in bonus: They represent getting lucky! FYI: The chips are not fragile but should not be washed with soap and water. All of the jewels are already priced at 50% off retail, but use code NNRE to score an additional 25% OFF at checkout.
