kara's vintage collection: billiard balls

a word my from sister:
to many, a set of billiard balls in a glass bowl isn’t very exciting.  but when my mom showed me her great find at her local catholic thrift store, I freaked out.  I don’t think I’ve ever seen billiard balls that were so old. I haven’t done much research, but I’m pretty sure they are true ivory, which was the primary material up until the mid 20th century. I love the yellowed coloring and the scratches from the many games they’ve been a part of.  I like imagining a group of gentleman playing pool with their brandy and cigars.
