Vintage 1960s Ludo set designed and produced by Rumbold Gallery
Almost more a decorative item than a board game, this is a strikingly designed “Ludo” set produced by Rumbold Gallery and sold during the late 1960s. It’s quite unlike most other Ludo games, featuring as it does a white plastic (perspex or similar) board which sits up above the surface, aluminium playing pieces, and a minimalist black and white aesthetic throughout. It’s Ludo, most certainly, but an adult version with “mod” sensibilities. It’s as if Mary Quant had designed it, in many ways.
The set is in good condition with only very minimal signs of any use, whilst the outer box does have more significant signs of age and storage wear and tear. The board measures approximately 30cm square with a height of 5cm (12 in. and 2 in. respectively) and the playing pieces measure approximately 1.5cm (5/8 in.) square. A pair of original (somewhat discoloured|) playing dice are included.
SORRY, SOLD OUT!
