#a298 :: Porcelain numbered sphere

December 8, 2008

ENLARGETo be fair, approved this has pinholes in either end, making its utility as some sort of glorified golfball-sized bead more apparent.

But I prefer to ignore the hole, and imagine it as a prop from Her Majesty’s weekly bingo game, held secretly in the rooms beneath Buckingham Palace.

It’s made of porcelain and fired with a snappy-looking glaze.

    I’ve never seen one of those pool-hall scorekeeper things outside of a movie, maybe it’s one of those?
