Antique Specimen Marble Mahogany Chess Table Grand Tour 1840 Victorian Regency
A gorgeous and very rare antique specimen marble and mahogany chess table in lovely condition. Likely dating to around 1840, this delightful and highly practical table will enhance any interior with its gorgeous colouring, fascinating appeal and sophisticated bygone aesthetic.
The specimen marble chess board was very likely brought back to England from an Italian Grand Tour pre-1840 and then later made into this striking and captivating mahogany Country House chess table.
The multi-coloured chess board is made of many wonderful eye-catching types of specimen marble, including Antique Vert, Red Griotte, Red Campan and many more.
Reassuringly heavy and beautifully crafted, the mahogany frame consists of a bordered and mitre-jointed top supported by a turned columnar and quadruped base with beautifully carved legs and feet.
An excellent size for a chess table, this works wonderfully as an eye-catching side or sofa table when not in use and all in all is a very rare and extremely attractive piece, which will enhance any setting and won’t fail to impress in even the grandest of interiors.
This is in very good condition. Structurally sound and sturdy, it has been refinished and has only a few minor to-be-expected marks to show its age including some hard-to-notice minor historic woodworm marks to one foot, for which the whole table has been treated for good measure. Overall it's a stunning and extremely rare antique chess table in really lovely condition and if well looked after it should be just as impressive for many generations to come – please see the photos.
