Antique 'Spelling Alphabet'

A lovely set of spelling letters dating from the late 19th Century, originally used as a teaching aid for young children learning their alphabet and spelling. They were often made and sold by Prisoner's of War. 

The letters are made of bone (cow/bovine) and there are 52 in total - two complete sets of 26 letters. The letters measure approximately 13/14mm high. 

The whole set is in very good condition. There are no major damages to any of the tiles and just some minor discolouration and marks on a few pieces. 

The set comes in a small round metal pot. It is probably not original to the set but they have certainly been kept in it for some time. 

The best description comes from the photos so please look at them all carefully and if you have any questions please ask.
