Beautiful Antique Mahogany Traveling Chess Set
Back before the advent of the computer, I can imagine my great grandfather on a cross-country train trip, say from Chicago to L.A., sitting in the lounge car with his pipe and cognac and playing a game of chess with this very set. Or great grandmother fingering her pearls in the parlor wondering about whether she should take his Queen. Ah, to be a romantic!
An estate item, upon finding the beautiful box, I didn't know what it was. Then! Though beat up a little bit on one side (as the photo shows), it still is in beautiful condition. It's open length is 20 inches long. The interior peg board is 9 x 9. With the case closed, it measures 10 x 5. It's side is 2-3/4 inches tall.
Not being a wood expert, it appears very much to be a beautiful crafted mahogany with brass fittings. Even its little Knights and Castles are simply and beautifully realized.
Thank you for offerding.
