Rare 19th century pollard oak specimen chess or games table, the hexagonal shaped top inlaid with chequers in prized specimen veneers including ebony, coromandel, rosewood, thuya, satinwood and burr elm and banded with amboyna and coromandel with box and ebony stringing. On a turned tapering egg & dart carved mahogany column with tripartite platform base raised on turned feet. Sympathetically cleaned and waxed, some slight solid bubbles in the veneer and marks and fading due to age.
Whilst the best cabinetmakers of the period would have had specimen pieces to show their customers examples of what different veneers looked like, they were also highly desirable items for wealthy clients who would enjoy being able to show off the ‘rare and curious’ woods within their homes.
Width - 20in (51cm) from corner to corner
Depth - 17.5in (44.5cm) from side to side
Height - 27.2in (69cm)

Please feel free to contact us for more information or photos, we have many more photos on file for each item but can only upload a limited number.
When buying it is important appreciate antiques have long histories of daily use and as such, over time they gain minor scratches, marks, knocks, shrinkage splits, signs of old woodworm, lifts and losses to veneer, which combine with care and years of polishing to create an individual character and patina. We describe the main flaws and those that fall outside of this bracket but cannot describe each marks separately and therefore suggest you do take the time to request extra photos. We do offer a 14 day money back guarantee if you are unhappy with your purchase but cannot refund the return shipping cost. If you are not sure please do not buy without clarifying or take the view that the only way to have it as near to new as possible is to have it fully and comprehensively restored.
For delivery we use a small carrier experience in carrying antique furniture. Delivery is usually within 31 days and the carrier will make arrangements with you directly. We can provide contact details of other carriers if required.
