Dominoes with raised dots


Accession Number: 2001.79

Description: Twenty-eight black plastic dominoes with red plastic raised dots. A raised line divides each domino in half, and blank halves are noted by a raised line. The back of each domino has a textured surface with a smooth circular pattern in the center. The dominoes are stored in a wooden box with a sliding lid. A depression at one end of the lid makes removal easier. Identical dominoes and box are pictured in the September 1933 Catalogue of Appliances for the Blind, published by the National Institute for the Blind, London, England.
