Advert Description

A lovely & unusual Antique or Vintage Chess, Backgammon & Draughts set.

It has been made to resemble two antique books "English Games Vol 1 & Vol 2".

The hinges require a dab of oil, as the hinges are a little stiff & it opens slightly when it's not set out for a game. We've had it stored vertically in the bookshelf where it sits well.

There are, as expected for the age, knocks, cracks & little pieces of leather missing here & there. I believe it could be leather over wood. It's still a solid piece.

It comes complete with a wooden chess set of 32 pieces.

There is some backgammon instructions dated 1931 priced at one shilling. These may not be original & might have been added.

There's also a small cardboard Draughts box but there are only 7 counters left in it.

The board is approx just over 8 1/2" wide by 15" tall.
Once open it's approx 17 1/2" wide by 15" tall.

Please study the images, as they also form part of the description & please do your own research. 

Can post at extra cost. Postage includes being signed for.
