Inlaid wooden chess tables gained popularity during the Victorian era and have become popular additions to contemporary spaces today.
Because antique chess tables were used by the wealthy, no expense was spared in their construction and craftsmanship. The chess pieces were typically made from wood, ivory and bone and were stored in a separate hinged box.
Antique chess tables and pieces are highly collectable items today. Circular or square, an antique chess table makes a wonderful addition to any lounge or study.
