This is the most exceptional chess table I have ever seen, the top is circa 1860-1880, Italian Pietra Dura marble which is the equivalent to marquetry inlay but with marble. It is beautifully crafted and looks expensive and important in any setting. The base is original Regency, itís a miniature version of a well know turned pedestal base for a dining table. I think it was a rare exhibition sample used to show at antique fairs the quality of the craftsman work, they made smaller pieces as they were easier to transport, they are very very rare and highly collectable. Finally we have an original Staunton boxwood chess set, if you know anything about chess then I wonít need to say anything else!
In terms of the condition the chess set has various chips due to genuine age and honest use, the table itself is in very good order for the period
