Ripolin Domino





At a flea market I bought this small box with little cards in it. This is 'Ripolin' said the woman who sold it to me. I nodded as if I knew what she meant, but truth was I didn't know what she was talking about. I just liked the colours and the other cards in the box.
So, once home, I looked up Ripolin and discovered it was a French paint brand. Turns out that the Dutch  Ripolin factory was situated in the town I live in.
Around 1915 they published this paper Domino game. Unfortunately, I don't have the original box.
