These gaming plaques are unique to American gaming. Sahara baccarat gaming plaques were manufactured by the Bourgogne et Grasset in France and delivered to the Sahara Hotel & Casino in 1974. The Sahara used these plaques in a failed attempt to glamorize baccarat at their hotel and casino.Eventually, they were all pulled from use. At some point hotel owner Del Webb began giving out sets to various employees. Complete sets are worth the most. This set is not a matched set, but is beautifully framed, and in excellent condition.
