The donors of this bridge set did play the game around the time of their marriage. As she stated: "When my husband was in medical school, and after we got married in 1956, we 'entertained' by having either 2 or 3 tables of Bridge, and then dessert. Few could afford more than that." The set, consisting of two decks of cards and a scoring pencil, is packed in a neat leather case. Bridge sets have two decks so that one can be shuffled while the other is dealt, to speed up the game. The bridge set was most likely a wedding present.
