Set of 18 Hand-Carved and Painted French Wooden Boules
These are simply fabulous! A large set of hand-carved boules (most are of walnut) in their original painted surface, except for the 4 smallest boules, which were never painted. Used to play the game of "petanque" in France, these were coveted and much-loved game pieces. Varying in size from 5.12" to 2.25" diameter, they would be perfect piled high in a bowl as a centerpiece on your holiday table, or start a new Christmas tradition with your own game!
