Peevers - Hopscotch, an ancient game for children.

A rare 19th century peever made out of stoneware and found in Scotland.  Hopscotch has been played by children across the globe for hundreds perhaps thousands of years.  It a has different name in every country.
 In Scotland poorer children filled shoe polish tins with small stones and used them as discs to slide across the paving stone grid.
