Object Detail

Brief Description
Cricket over counter, long rectangular brass frame with a section of the frame in the middle of one of the long edges moulded to point inward into the rectangle, to act as a breaker for the eight flattened brass beads which are threaded onto the frame, and which are pushed past the 'breaker' one at a time to count the number of balls bowled in an over. The frame has a shiny black colour (lacquer?) painted on one end. Used by Victorian and Sheffield Shield umpire Charles Juliff, who umpired cricket for approximately ten years in the 1930s; this counter is thought to have been used in the latter half of the decade.
