The first specialist game table was
introduced in the late 17th century. This specialist chess table is a
reproduction from George 1st era oval in shape with a chess
board in the center and room on either side of the board to place
the chess pieces in play. A brass gallery around each end of the
table prevents the chess pieces from falling off the table during
play. A drawer at the front and back of the table was used to store
chess pieces, dice and scoring pads.The drawer fronts are decorated
with a rectangular raised cock bead around the 2 brass
drawer knobs. A raised carving around the ends of the table under
the gallery is decorated with a raised cock bead to match the decoration
on the drawer fronts The 4 turned fluted legs are fitted
with casters. A set of black and white hand made chess pieces are
included with the table.
Available in a walnut finish.
