Crown and feathers Eye dice are ancient dice, usually made of bone, with a red bundle of feathers on the side 6 instead of the eyes, a black crown and on the side 3 instead of the eyes. Often called the Prince of Wales Feathers.
Research has shown that these are not Stamp Act cubes, but that they were accessories of the game "Royal Ludo", a Ludo variant.
From about 1890 to 1920.
