The game of Solitaire is reputed to have been invented by a nobleman confined in the Bastille prison during the early years of the French Revolution. The game is played with 36 marbles and the object is to eliminate all but one marble, which should ideally end up in the center of the game board. With marbles hand-cut from petrified tropical mahogany and a wonderfully smooth wood game board, this luxurious game set is a work of functional art.
