Game of Graces

Game of Graces

$ 33.95

Opponents send gaily beribboned hoops whirling towards each other to be caught on the tips of slender wands in this exciting and elegant outdoor game. The game of Graces was considered proper and beneficial exercise for young ladies in the early 1800’s, and it was proper as well for boys to join in the game as a "lark". Judging by children’s books and store advertisements, the game of Graces remained as popular throughout the 19th century as it is today.

Includes: 4 Wands (2 for each player)

  • 2 Hoops (10" diameter, single ply steam bent, local Vermont Ash wood
  • Ribbons for decorating both hoops
  • Instructional poster with history of the game
