A wonderful and most unusual chess board, slightly smaller than most, measuring 11 1/2" square with each tile measuring 1 1/4", so perfect to use with a smaller chess set or checkers.
What makes this so very unusual is of course the intricate Tunbridge Ware or Parquetry inlay with a variety of exotic woods. The base is made from solid Mahogany.
A handsome and highly decorative example in excellent condition; Victorian in era, around 1870.
