Fine featherball inscribed, “Made in the year 1800”

A fine and rare featherball bearing a worn inscription, “Made in the year 1800”.

Very few ‘ featheries’ survived from this era or earlier, with the vast number of examples known dating from 1830-1855.

This ball bears its original white lead paint, and retains the skin marking of the ball maker!
