Spectacular Framed Siam Porcelain Gambling Tokens Set with Info Sheet and miniture Playing Cards. This set features 66 porcelain gambling tokens from Siam each with a unique design. These gambling tokens were used in gambling houses of Siam in the 19th century. The first tokens made were glass, then metal and finally porcelain. Eventually the tokens became very popular and started circulating as cash for purchases in stores. The tokens were accepted until 1875, but in 1876 the government declared them illegal to produce. Despite this, they were still used many years afterwards.
