Blackjack isn’t all fun and games!
The White Horse Inn saw it’s fair share of ne’er-do-wells and ruffians and our last landlord, Willoughby Dudley-Hay, left me behind still in the bar and ready for action!
A blackjack is a short, concealable weapon (though I just hid in the bar). They are usually filled with lead powder, molten lead clay or lead shot. I was a very effective weapon a little light bludgeoning to keep the punters in line!
Material unknown I am fragile… possibly from overuse! I look like I have made contact with a fair few temples in my time. The Museum need to treat me with kid (Nitrile) gloves now I retired from active duty.
Consider me for adoption -you won’t really get to take me home, but you’ll get 2 free tickets to come visit me plus kids 12 and under are always free – so I’m a day out and an historical object rolled in one!
