Collection of 15 Antique Italian Bocce Balls

About

Primitive antique handmade collection of 15 Italian bocce balls or French “boules” of various sizes. The Italians call these balls bocce balls and the French “boules” or “boules de Pétanque”. The game of bocce or boules are very similar. These solid wood balls are made of very hard wood that looks like ash or elm wood. Not an actual set but these can be used as decorative objects, piled high in a chunky glass container or in a clam basket as shown. One slightly bigger and 2 slightly smaller. Price does not include clam basket. There is a separate listing for the basket, $350.
