19th Century - 1893
This game stick or nyout stick made of wood was used to play nyout-nol-ee or nyout playing (윳놀이). There are four nyou sticks in this set. One of the sides is flat while the other side is convex and retains the natural tree branch shape. There are few cracks visible on these sticks.
