A mahogany travellers’ chess set - For Sale

A mahogany travellers’ chess set
Price: $400.00
A mahogany travelers’ chess set. A ‘Whittington’ style portable chess set, the main body of the board is made of mahogany with squares of rosewood and holly. The playing pieces are of the peg style and made of bone with one side plain and the other coloured red. The lid flaps close up to enclose the pieces with the board then folding in half again and it can then be locked with little catches on either side. The ingenious way in which this board folds up allows play to be stopped half way through a game without all the pieces moving. There are holes all around the board for the captured pieces to be placed. Size when open: 10 inches x 19 1/4 inches. Circa: 1900
