A quite remarkable antique, huanghuali (we believe) and inlaid  folding chess board we assume made on commission in China. The workmanship is of the highest quality and the size is impressive at 60 cm square when open and the squares are a generous 5.5 cm. Large folding chess boards were very much evident in the 18th and 19th century in India and China and this is a rare Chinese example of a wood board as opposed to the common lacquer and painted variety.
