Beautifully hand turned hardwood Skittles in an English willow basket complete with hardwood turned balls and traditional English Bridle hide trim – anyone for a game?

Nine solid hardwood (of your choice) full-size garden skittles are lovingly made by our highly skilled master wood turner. Then waxed and polished and inlaid with leather to each top.

Three fantastic perfect hand-turned spheres finish this splendid piece off; which is then housed in an equally beautiful giant English willow hand-woven round basket complete with traditional London tan English Bridle hide leather. From young adults to fully grown ones, this is a simple but challenging game of skill and will bring its own elegance to a beautifully tended lawn.

Description

What family picnic is complete without a game of Garden Skittles? Hand turned to create a beautiful, bespoke finish; our luxury skittles are stored in a hand-woven basket.

Skittles is an old English lawn game; very similar to bowling, it’s predominantly played in the United Kingdom and Ireland as both an indoor and outdoor game.

Now popular around the world each country has it’s own variation of the game; in Catalonia, it’s called Bitlles and is considered a very local game.

It’s thought Skittles dates back as far as 3300 BEC in Ancient Egypt but also shares a heritage with bowls and other lawn games.
