    Hi there,

    I am brand new to this group and am needing some help locating this object, or at least what it is called.

    A few years ago my Dad mentioned he was looking for this particular item and had been looking for years at antique shops, I thought I would try and find him one, but his description of the item left me puzzled, was wondering if anyone knows what I'm talking about, here is the description he gave me;

    It is a brass figure made from metal (possibly brass) and stands about 7.5cm tall. It is holding a rod with miniature cards attached to it. So when playing games such as Nomination Risk, you can flip the cards over the pole to reveal hearts, clubs, spades, and diamonds.

    This is the only description I have, has anyone seen one of these?

    Thank you in advance

    Welcome, Chantelle. INH first off the mark, as usual. I'm not a card player so had to start from scratch. Is Nomination Risk the same as this game?

    Wow, can I just say that was SUCH a fast response!

    I have shown my Dad the main image and he said it was that idea just a bit more ornate, but I noticed you included the link to the Google search which was super helpful! Thank you so much, now I know what to type in when I am looking for them!

    Thank you so much, you're amazing!

    Thank you for the welcome!

    Unfortunately he didn't, but by the sounds of it, it was just ornate brass rods, but I had NO idea how many different kinds there were!

    I am super impressed by how fast her response was, she nailed it haha

    That one looks so pretty! I told him what to look for and he showed me this one (only brass) so not actually too ornate by the looks, more dainty. But thank you so so much for all your help!

    Hope between the 2 of you, you can find one he likes. Is this nostalgic for him?

    I never WAS much of a card player.....the MAIN person I did play with was my FIL and a friend of his and it was Pinochle....and they BOTH counted cards.....for me...it took all the fun out of it!!!!!!!!!!!!! But it was fun getting together with them when I was newly married and didn't know anyone (was from N.J.)!!!!
