    Description

    A Walter Matthau Fancy Game Set, Circa 1990s. An elaborate and heavy oval-shaped case made of metal, handles on either side, trimmed in light brown textured suede, top Plexiglass lid resembles a porthole, inside contains three decks of playing cards, poker chips, other types of rectangular and square chips, and dice; appearing to have been designed for a ship or boat as the case is quite weighty -- approximately 20 pounds. Requires Third Party Shipping.
    11" x 17" x 4"

    Matthau did co-own a yacht so it seems likely that he kept this set onboard.

    Included with a "Letter of Provenance" signed by Charlie Matthau, son of Walter Matthau.
