A very large early 19th century rosewood folding chess board, the interior fitted for a chess set. The board with rosewood and satinwood squares, surrounded with a rosewood and Gonzalo Alvez banding within a rosewood frame. One side has gone opaque from being in the daylight, which I quite like, but this can be polished if required. The box is lockable (sorry, I don’t have the key, but could try and get one cut if required). The interior is fitted with a green beize and will hold a chess set with a king height up to 4¾ inches high, you would have to check the sizes of the other pieces as each has its own compartment.
