SOLD- Rosewood Chess/Backgammon Board
A folding rosewood chess and backgammon board (390mm square) inlaid with satinwood, ebony and ivory, circa 1870.
The manner of decoration is typical of the work done by the box makers of Tunbridge Wells – the board is carefully and well made.
Throughout its long life the box has had some minor repairs to the inside corners near to the hinge – this has been done carefully and competently. Many would not spot this but I do try be as accurate as possible.
A decorative and beautiful thing with loads of charm and nice aged patina to the timber.
