Duck Pin

Ever hear of Duck Pin bowling? Well, it started at the turn of the century. Most bowling alleys were only open in the winter but those few that stayed open in the summer devised a new game using smaller balls. As the game evolved, its creators took the old regular sized bowling pins and actually had them cut down to a smaller size to accommodate the smaller ball. Giving the game its own set of rules and regulations, and setting the pins up in the flying "V" formation of ducks, created a new sport.

Try using a trio of them to spruce up your bookshelf or table top. They not only give a space some vertical color and dimension, but they create a topic of historic conversation as well. After all, how many of your friends have ever heard of Duck Pin Bowling?
