This is a rare, desirable World War I era "San Farian" marked put and take.   "Sanfarian" is from a French word(s)  of which the best meaning seems to be "without doing anything."  I think that if the spinner landed on the "San Farian" side showing, the player would either spin again or pass the spinner to the next player. (Put and Take was introduced to the British through the trenches in France in WW I.)  Click here for more information about San Farian.
¶ sides read: San Farian (spin again), one in (spinner puts one in), one out (spinner takes one out), two in (spinner puts two in), two out (spinner takes two out), all in one (all players put one in pot), pool (spinner takes all), all in two (all players put two into pot.

¶ excellent condition, like new.  Nickel on brass.  Spins fine.  Fine engraved letters and numbers. Another picture of it. .. ... ..... . This is top #2 as seen in the picture and chart  on my put and take personal collection page.
The top you will be getting looks like this one -- horses in the same order. It shows the "Odds On, Pat. App'd. For" engraved on the top of the spinner.
¶ the horses names are (in this order): Yutoi-Envoy-Harrier, Scamp, Sicyon, Golden Corn.
¶ "Odds On, Pat. App'd. For" is engraved on the top of the spinner.   Famous British race horses, c. 1920's. (Yutoi was born 1917 and Golden Corn 1919.  In the U.S., anyway, horses raced about 2,3 4 years after birth.  Please correct me if I am wrong about that.) Probably made for the British market.
¶ The odds on top spin independently of the bottom (horses' names.)  All metal.
¶ the odds are: DISQ,10-1,2-1,
4-1,6-1,8-1
Click here to see another one you can buy for $55.  Poor picture, but in fine condition.  The lower  "chromium" level is in terrific condition. The engraving on the top of the upper level is very readable: "Odds On, Pat. App'd. For."  The engraving is fine on the upper level, though tarnished in places so you might want to clean and/or polish it.

(a) Lucky Hour, Bunting, Colin, Man-o-War, Morvich and Pillory.

Wonderful vintage conversation peice, must-have for the Put and Take collector. This is a very rare piece.  It is the first one I have seen on eBay all these years.  I have one in my personal collection (click here to see it, near the top of that page), and it is in poor condition with parts missing.
¶ As shown, it disassembles to be a: put & take top, 3 small dice, a working compass and a presumably working mechanical lead pencil.  Not shown here, but I just discovered that the red tip end also unscrews to show a metal tip for a dip-ink pen!  
¶ sides read: take all, put all, take one, put one, put two and takes two.
the Put and Take top spins very poorly even though it is in mint condition, so I guess it was made poorly spin-wise to begin with. Of course, the game can be played even if the top does not spin -- it flops about and lands on one side randomly.  And as noted, this wonderful, vintage  piece is sold as a unique collectible, not  as a playing piece!

"O-BOY" Bonne Chance Corporation metal put & take spinner -- brass, 1-1/2" across (the size of a poker chip!).  A wonderful put and take -- it uses the term  "win" instead of  "take," and "lose" instead of "put." Fine condition, spins terrifically, endlessly. A bit soiled, but I made no effort to clean it up, though it is OK as it is now.  Very desirable piece.  To see the name of the New York City manufacturer on the reverse side, click here. For side view, click here.  To see one I recently sold (and the one advertised here might be cleaned up to look like it), click here.

You can use it to play Put & Take in either of two ways: (1) flick the arrow with your finger, or (2) as the pictures show, there is a nipple (point) on the bottom, so you can spin the entire piece as though it were a top, and while it is spinning, just touch the arrow, or just wait till it stops.
