ANTIQUE INDIAN IVORY FOLDING CHESS & BACKGAMMON BOARD
Early 19th century
Counter diameter: 1¼ inches / 3.3 cm
Stock number: RW3914/0119
An early 19th century Indian ivory folding chess and backgammon board, which comes complete with its original ivory and horn backgammon pieces, shakers and dice, which are also probably original. It is very rare to still find the pieces with the boards and this board was discovered in a store in a private house, where it had been for many, many years. The board has suffered some losses and damage and this is reflected in the asking price.
