Description:
DYNAMIC RACE HORSE GAME WHEEL, MADE BY H.C. EVANS, CHICAGO, IL 1950:

Elaborately embellished race horse gaming wheel, made by Evans & Company in Chicago. Each of the wheel's 10 panels are brightly colored lithographs behind glass, framed by lengths of decorative nickel-plated trim. The four crown-shaped center panels are foil-decorated mirror, framed with the same trim and finished with whimsical stars. Numbers once ran the outer edge of the wheel and were the real source of the game it was used for, which functioned quite like a ball-in-cage lottery with payouts that alternated based on the changing number in the cylindrical tower.

The polychrome painted wooden post that supports the wheel has a cast-iron, tripod base. It collapses for easy transport. The pins are nickel-plated. .
