Two To One Shop (Grose 1811 Dictionary)

Two To One Shop

A pawnbroker’s: alluding to the three blue balls, the sign of that trade: or perhaps to its being two to one that the goods pledged are never redeemed.

Definition taken from The 1811 Dictionary of the Vulgar Tongue, originally by Francis Grose.
