Vintage Large Chess Table for sale - nr. St. Albans
This is an unusual and appealing chess table made from wood with a large wooden Knight forming the centre column under the table. The location and date of manufacture are unknown but it predates the mid 1960’s and appears to be designed for indoor use.
It is in average condition (with some scuffs marks) but a restorer or French polisher should easily be able to bring it back to optimum condition.
The table top is covered by separate and detachable glass sheet to protect it. The weight of the table is unknown but it is heavy and it normally takes two people to move it comfortably. Measurements are approx:
- 81 by 81 cm square
- 71 cm in height
- Piece sizes range from just over 9cm in height for the pawn to just over 14 cm in height for the king
The table is currently insured for £4,000. It was recently brought to England when the owner returned from Hong Kong. The reason for sale is that the owner no longer plays Chess and could do with the space.
Asking Price: £3500. This does not include delivery but we can give advice on possible delivery methods if required. The seller would welcome any potential buyers who wish to view the table before making a decision. The Chess table is located in St. Albans (but please note that it is not being helld at our address).
