From a NH Estate is this beautiful hand crafted vintage inlaid wooden game box. One can play backgammon on the inside of the box when it is open flat and chess or checkers on the outside when it is open flat and placed upside down. It is the mosaic design that forms the attractive backgammon, chess and checker boards. Everything can be contained on the inside when it is folded in half and locked. The intricate geometric mosaic design is made of inlaid hand cut pieces wood of various sizes, grains and colors with lots of mother of pearl intertwined throughout - this design is as intricate on the inside as it is on the outside. It contains 15 natural wood checkers with a round design on each and 13 darker wood with design and two darker wood plain ones, it also has two white minature dice and a pair of red dice (there are no chess pieces included). It is in good shape with the exception of a several places where some of the tiny pieces are missing but with so much going on it is not overly noticeable. Closed box measures 20 1/2" wide X 10 1/4" in depth X 3 1/2" tall; opened measures 20 1/2" wide X 20 1/2" in depth X 1 3/4" tall. Overall it is pretty well preserved with some traces of age and wear.
